The York Family Tree of Texas

Updated November 25, 2001

About Our Family Research

My name is Larry J York, descendant of Adam and America York. I first discovered Adam and America on the 1870 census in Georgia. The census listed Adam age thirty-five years and America thirty. Adam was listed as black and America listed has a Mulatto. On the 1870 census there were two children listed. One son named Shammon and a daughter name Ella 1 year old. Adam appeared on the 1880 census at the age of forty-seven. By now you can see the change in age of Adam and America. Now there are seven children listed on the census. Adam father was born in North Carolina, and America parents were born in Georgia. At present I do not know were Adam or America was born. He was married to women by the name America no maiden is known. She was born around 1848. They came to Texas and settle down in Waxahachie Texas. My great-grandfather was one of Adam 17 children. I am looking for any persons that might be related. My great-grandfather was Heard York born 1881. Adam was listed on the 1880 census as 35 years of age. Listed below is a partial list of some of the children.
Georigia Ann
Shannon or Shammon

These are the children of Adam York.
