Emma Dale Capps
I am very new to all this "wonderful" information on genealogy and family linage, and don't know quite where to start--so I'll just jump in!!!I want to begin by congratulating everyone who has posted information on this, and other like sites--you have done a superb job--and I can't thank you enough for information already gained.
There is so much information on this site--but I still can't find my connection to the CAPPS line.I have a death certificate for my great-grandmother who was Emma Dale Capps, and was married to Thomas Elbert Dean.The certificate states that she was born in Texas on September 9, 1861, and died on February 9, 1944.Both she and her husband are buried at Roselawn Burial Park in San Antonio, Texas.It also states that her father was John Capps amd her mother was ------ Adams.
I thought I had heard my grandmother Dean say that her father was William Ransom Capps--but now that I have began to trace this line--I see that their birthdates are too close together for that to be feasable.Ransom Capps is also entered in one of my grandmother's old bibles as being Emma's father--but I now believe that to be the doings of one of my aunts--without any proof!Does anyone have this Emma Dale Capps (Dean) on their "lines" --and could you please offer some assistance.With all of this information dealing with the CAPPS family, I'm sure the information is out there somewhere--but I'm just not having any luck finding it.I really appreciate everyone's help--even for just taking the time to read my posting--Best regards--James L.
