Coonrod Family of Fannin County, Texas Updated November 9, 2000
About Our Family Research
I am researching the history of the Coonrod family that came to Texas in 1847 from Greene County, Illinois. Prior to that, they came from Kentucky. Research has led me down to present day - filling in family names, marriages, births, and deaths. Most of the information has been obtained directly from current family members, Fannin County History records, and the internet. Research is almost complete on the direct line starting with George Coonrod in 1770 down through my father, Earnest Raymond Coonrod, and the data on my siblings, our children and grandchildren. Plans are to establish the data on my uncles, aunt, and their families respectively. My concern is that our grandchildren have this information in order to better understand their roots.
