About Our Family Research
Capt W.J. aka "Mac" McFarland and me, his daughter, Jaye Suzanne started this project as something to do together. I was in Texas and he lived in Alabama. As most of our family has been in Texas since it's beginning and Houston has a great Geneaology Library, it made good sense for me to do the Texas research on things he could not find. This was before the age of computers!
We are lucky enough to have family that belong to "The Daughters of the Republic of Texas", "Children of the Republic of Texas" and "Sons of the Republic of Texas". His Aunt that lived in Dallas,TX gave him the bug which he gave to me and the hunt was on! After his death in 1989, I sort of dropped the project but as of 2002 I am going to try to finish what he started and get his papers on the computer for family that will follow in years to come.
