Letter of Tilford Denton to John Denton, 30 Aug 1895
For several years I have attempted to prove the parentage of Elizabeth Denton who married James English.James and Elizabeth Denton English are the parents of Hannah English who married Jonathan Anderson.These are my ancestors who came to Texas in its very early days while under the rule of Mexico.
There are two letters written in 1895 by members of the Denton family that are of great interest to me.One of the letters, is from Tilford Denton of Carrol County, Arkansas to John Denton.This letter states that Betty Denton is the daughter of Jonas Denton and Hannah.Another letter written two days prior from William Denton to Jonas Denton also explains some Denton family relationships.
Does anyone know where I could obtain a copy of this letter?It is the only type of documentation I have ever found to establish this family connection.Transcripts of both letters are found on RootsWeb in the Denton-L archives here:DENTON > 1999-03 > 0921884012 andDENTON > 1999-03 > 0921768376.
I emailed all parties who had posted the letters or those who responded with comments and received no responses. Any assistance given would be greatly appreciated.
