Just saw your May message regarding the Routt Family in Chappell Hill, Texas.My husband's gg grandfather was Joseph William Routt, born in Charlotte Co VA 20 Nov 1821.Married Eugenia Louise Blackbourn 1 May 1845 in Huntsville, Madison Co Al.She was born 9 Mar 1829 in Madison Co Al.1850 Census of Washington Co TX shows they were in Texas at that time.Also on this listing are Frank age 14, Susan age 12, Joseph age 4 and John age 2.The last 3 children were born in Texas.(Frank born in Al - I believe he must be Francis William Routt.He is buried in Chappell Hill - died 3 Apr 1879.) I have 11 children listed for Joseph and Eugenia.All names were taken from the J. W. Routt Family Bible.I have copies of these pages.I was told that the Bible was in the hands of Jack Routt.I think this person is Julia Jack Routt that just died in 1997 in Liberty Co TX.Don't know what happened to this Bible. My husbands ancestor was child #7 - John Alexander Routt born 20 May 1858 in Chappell Hill, married Hester Burton Brigance in Grimes Co TX.They built a home in Chappell Hill in the early 1900 and that home still stands.It was for sale a few years ago and we went to look at the place.My husband could not believe it still had some of the same old wall paper on the walls that was there when his great grandmother had the home. The 11th child was apparently your ancestor - Jackson Roffe Routt, born 6 Mar 1869 in CH.He died 12 Feb 1961 and is buried in CH.He married Lillian Mae Peveto of Cameron Parish La in Huntsville, Madison Co AL.I have 4 children listed for them.Thelma Mae Routt, Julia Jack Routt, Jackson Roffe Routt, Jr. and Margaret Eugenia Routt.All born in CH.
Thelma Mae Routt was one of Jackson Roffe & Lillian Mae Peveto Routt's children has a beautiful old home in CH.My records show that it was built in 1853 and belonged to her parents.How cool is that!!It has been on the "Tour of Homes"several times.I have not seen the house in at least 10 years.Hope it is still loved. This is more than I expected to write, you most likely know this info anyway.If not I would love to share what I have in exchange for info you could share. Look forward to hearing from you. Jody
