Re: Choate Family of East Texas
My name is Carol Choate Edwards.I am trying to research the Choate family on which I have very little information.I'm trying to establish to which Choate line I belong.Here's the limited information I have:
Henry Choate (DOB 1835)- He married Charlotte Harper Lewis 4-26-1874 and lived in Kirbyville,TX.I did find a Henry Choate in a 1860 DeKalb, AL census with Margaret Choate listed as head of household.I have no idea if this is my ggrandfather.
Thomas Martin Choate (DOD 1911).He married Mary Indiana Cochran on 11-4-1894 and lived in Kirbyville, TX.
Thomas Harold Choate (1899-1992) born in Kirbyville, TX married Helen Mildred Eddy in 1931.
Lived in San Antonio, TX and Houston, TX .This is my father.
All the Choates I know anything about lived in East Texas, however, I know they migrated from elsewhere.Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.I believe I recall my father saying they came from Alabama, but that's a distant memory.
I look forward to your reply.
Carol C. Edwards
