I have Doc Francis Underwood Born March 27 1866 in Angelina Co. TX and died July 19 1937 TX.He was the son of Francis Marion Underwood (b. 30 March 1835 KY. or TN.died 5 May 1911 S.W. of Bowie TX.(Francis Marion (F.M.)was a Civil War Veteran (Confederate Side)-Supposedly walked home on crutches after war.)) and Mary Elizabeth (Eliza) Bailey (b. 27 Feb 1841 in Florida. d. 7 Sep 1921 in Bowie, TX.)
I am a descendant of Maudie Urler Throckmorton-Underwood.Her 2nd child, Mattie Myrtle (Myrtle) Underwood was my great grandmother.Myrtle had 14 children with William Herbert Gustin.My grandmother is the 10th child.Bernice Gustin, b. 6 July 1926 in OK.
I have no info on parents of F.M. Underwood or Mary Elizabeth Bailey right now.However, today is my grandmas birthday and I will be calling her later.I will ask formore info on the Underwoods.
I do remember a story she told me about Doc Francis' name though.He was born a Francis _______ (not sure, will ask Grandma today) Underwood.He was 2 years old when his father, Francis Marion Underwood left for the Civil War.At this point, they for some reason started calling him (the 2 year old)Doc.It was a nickname given to him as a child, he was never a doctor.He was a farmer and so was his father, Francis Marion.
I have photos of the following Underwoods........

I have been doing work on the Throckmorton side of the family.I have a good start if you are interested.I have started with James Daniel Throckmorton who married Loucretia Henerietta Price.They had 7 children, Maudie being the 4th.I am at a standstill on James Daniel though.Do you have any info on him or Loucretia?I have been in contact with several of the Throckmorton descendants via internet/email and have aquired a very nice collection of Throckmorton photos.
I will send you a couple of photos to your email address.My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd prefer corresponding that way.
