What city, county, state, and/or country? Harris county; Groton township; incorporated place Mystic Texas
What year and/or time period? 1930s forward, believe he passed in the seventies
Comments:
My maternal grandfather; he was married to jula H (Hande) Cox, their child Vivian L (Lindene Hande) Cox was baptised in the Episcopal Church there. I believe there were two other sons, Charles M.(Mabrey) Cox (Jr.) and Clifford (either C. Charles or M. Mabrey) Cox. I spoke this Charles Mabrey once, in the sixties, thought he was in Galena Park, he had cancer-I know he was ill. IN particular, I've been wanting, needing to find their grave sites, his and my grandmother Julia's. I believe there may have been a divorce and a remarriage? My cousin Patrick Cox just passed, 27 March 2012 in Wichita, Kansas. He was my last living relative on my mother's side I've been in contact with. Feeling at a great loss from here in Wyoming. I'm 63, 64 7 October 2012, b 1948. Many thanks and much respect for all of your efforts. I plan to be in Texas, to come to Harris, now I know this is where they were in the 1930s US FED Census. Charles M (Mabrey) census residencies 1900 Holmes, FLA; 1920 Holmes, Fla; 1920 Baltimore, Maryland where it states b abt 1897--also that is where he and Julia were married, where my mother was born. The birth certificate lists his profession as a printer. 1930 census shows all three in Harris, Texas. If there is ever someone, or a ph to call and speak in person just let me know.

Thank you all so very much for your work helping others to try to find their family ancesters. My search is to find date of death and burial location of a g-uncle and his wife. Their names Archie Baker Hayes and Eva Hayes. I do not know her maiden name, but know that she was living with her parents somewhere near Paris, Texas when they married. Do not know date or location of marriage.

Comments:
My g-g-g grandfather was Allen C. Reynolds. He was granted one league of land in Houston, Harris County by the Mexican Government, April, 1831. The city of Houston and the historical societies have given great recognition to the Allen Brothers. They were indeed the first to build Houston,
but not the first to own property in Houston. They bought their property(downtown Houston) from John Austin's widow.
They were not given a Mexican Land Grant.
Allen Reynolds had a grist mill on Buffalo Bayou near Memorial Park, closer description would be the Bayou at the Historical hOME, BAYOU BEND. HIS ONE LEAGUE OF LAND WAS FROM BUFFALO BAYOU ON THE NORTH TO HOLCOMB ON THE SOUTH,
SHEPARD TO THE EAST, AND THE RAIL ROAD TRACTS TO THE WEST.
THAT INCLUDED ALL OF RIVER OAKS AND TO THE NORTH OF RIVER OAKS TO THE BAYOU, GREENWAY PLAZA AND UNIVERSITY PARK.
HE SOLD THE PROPERTY IN 1835 AND MOVED TO WASHINGTON cOUNTY
WHERE HE DIED MARCH, 1837.
COULD SOMEONE IN THE HARRIS COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, PLEASE GIVE SOME RECOGNITION TO ALLEN REYNOLDS AND HIS WIFE HARRIET. THEY WERE THE FIRST FAMILY OF HOUSTON TEXAS.
THANKS

I'm mainly looking for John Cox and Mary Elizabeth Davis Cox, I found them in 1880 in Houston. I heard they owned property on Old Liberty Rd. but haven't found that yet and also where they were buried. Their daughter Jessamine Brumbelow died in 1920 and I was told by relative she inherited the land in Houston before she died. Can't find where that happened either. I would love some help on this.I live in West Virginia now and only have the internet for Texas lookups.

Comments:
Seeking information on George Allen Herring and his wife Margie Virginia (Wilson) who gave birth to a daughter Krista Kayleen Herring in Harris County, Texas, on March 4, 1968 and an older son John Herring who is 2-4 years older. It was told that George Allen Herring was a lawyer in South Texas who became involved with an unsuitable situation and was murdered. It was said that John & Krista became orphans and were sent to a Children's Home and was relocated to a Southern Christian Childrens Home out of State. By that it is assesseded that Margie may have also died at the same time or passed away before George. It is possible they relocated after birth record in 1968. As of yet no further records have been found of them.... George nor Margie's death record has not been located through SSDI, nor an obituary for either in Harris County. No record has yet been found in surrounding area. Would appreciate any information on this family and or any known relatives.

My great grandparents died in Houston but can't find where they were buried. I was told Green Cemetery but can't find a list of names buried there. Also they owned land on Liberty Rd. that my grandmother inherited before her death. Their names are John Cox and Mary "Mollie" Elizabeth Davis.He was born in Ms in 1842 and died 20 Aug 1884. Mollie was born in Tennessee 1860 and died 22 Jul 1886. I live in West Va. so it's hard to find information. If anyone can help Thanks in advance.

thank you i need help, my mother-in-law,was told by her mother on her deathbed that she was not thier child, her child she had died in birth--she was given to them, taken from a indian woman. We saw a paper that had given them guardenship of her that she later burned -she was given the 19th as her birth but we saw an earlier date in the month on a schoolrecord. Eldon F Spaulding and Bertie E Desforges are the parents listed. She never had a birth-certificate-nor s.s.card she used her husband's . If you had seen her you would call her indian,unfortunately she was ashamed of her history. If you could please help us we would be very greatful. thank you Sue Hatala

Searching for birth/death records on my father. Allen (edwards) marshall, and records of his brothers and sisters. . His mothers name was Josephine Alford Edwards. She was married to Jacob Edwards. I think he was born allan Lelonzo Edwards in 1916, changing his name to Marshall at a later date. Jacob and Josephine had six more children. 1 Nettie merle(married Grover Cleveland)
2.Mary
3.Bonnia (married to aunt zorine) she was a minister or preacher)
4 & 5 .Twins Melvin and Malcolm ( one died young the other died in Pittsburg, ca. in the 1940's h, he was in the navy or army.
6.H B
I am having trouble finding any information on any of them.
Allen/allan and his brother Bonnia were burned in a fire in 1956. Allen/allen died as a result of that fire within a few days. Uncle Bonnie and Aunt Zorine came to Calif. for a visit after his recuperation. The only time in my memory that I saw them. I do have pictures as a baby with Gramma Edwards, my brother Wayn and Four (4) of aunt netties children. I also have a picture with Uncle Bonnie in calif. I believe it was taken in the late fifties. My mother Marjorie Wright was married to Allen Marshall, I believe in 1943 or 1944. My brother, Wayne Allen Marshall was born in 1944 in Los Angeles, Ca. I was born in Herman Hosp. in Houston, Tex. in 1946 (Janine Charlotte Marshall). I need help in locating information.

There was a time that I could go to Courthouses, Cemeteries Libraries. Age and illness no longer allows me to do that. So, getting Computerized is certainly the way to go. Thank you to all the volunteers. cbh
