My family history
I stumbled across this site and it stirred my attention due to the fact that I share a surname with this particular project. From what I know, and from what little my father has told me:
My great grandfather settled in Whitney, TX in order to farm and raise a family. When the city decided to build a lake on top of his farm, he moved the clan to Aquilla, TX, only 20 miles away.
My father, born in 1953, lived on the farm his entire life and still owns property in Aquilla.
3.According to what his father told him, our family moved from
Tennessee during some sort of post-Texas-revolution land rush. Before that, he believed we had come from Ireland and the like somewhere around the 1750's.
This is the majority of the information I have on our particular family. If names and dates are needed to go back further, I can provide.
