I just started researching the family.I have very little information other than approx date ranges:
DATES:POWELL,FREEMAN,HIGGENBOTHAM,HOUSTON, AND BURNS IN TX
1860 TO PRESENT
MERRILL IN WI APPROX 1880
MERRILL IN OK APPROX 1930?
POWELL IN CA APPROX 1940
HAGGERSON IN WI/CA? APPROX 1880
BURNS IN LA 1860?
This all started from a birth certificate I found for my great grandfather, Andrew Marion Burn, born in Huntington, TX in 1886.His parents were Andrew Clisby Burns from La and Fracis Higgenbotham from TX.He married a woman named Grace, but I haven't any information on her maiden name.They were the parents to my grandmother, Edlois Burns Merrill.She married William Claude Burns, from WI.They had two children, my father, William Claude Merrill, Jr and Sally Merrill Ervin.
I have been since inspired to research my mother's heritage as well.Powell is her maiden name and most of the information I have for her lineage, I have gathered from a family bible.This includes the surnames of POWELL,FREEMAN,and HOUSTON from TX.
If you think you have any information for the above relations, please let me know and we can exchange data.
