Hello Everyone; I am searching for the ancestors of Edward Franklin Rushing who was born August 26, 1880 in Texas. He was my Grandfather and said his father's name was John Rushing who married Harriet Lee Beard in 1878 Erath County, Texas. John Rushing shows on the 1880 Federal Census for Erath Co., TX. My Grandmother said Edward Rushing's grandfather's name was Preston Rushing.
Ed Rushing later moved to northern New Mexico where he lived out his life as a store keeper and farmer.
I hope you will find useful or interesting information here.
