Dear Roy,

I just saw your post to Frank Saffold re Saffolds in Texas. Most interesting to see they came to the Belton and Lamar County areas.

I am a direct Saffold and I am about half way between all the above Texas placenames.
I am at Gilmer, TX, about 20 miles NW of Longview on I-20. And, I also have to go way back up the Saffold tree to connect with yours, but it does. In early Georgia.

In Frank Saffold's tree sent to you, I notice the name FANNIN in that. You may know already, but that is the same family as James Walker Fannin, Texas Revolutionary leader at Goliad. Seems I saw something else in yours of interest. Will have to look again.

I am a partially-retired history teacher, age 54, but teach U. S. and Texas history part-time at both Kilgore College and Panola College.

I had NEVER heard of the name SAFFOLD until I got into genealogy. But it is known in GA and ALA. Some interesting ancestors--many lawyers--in early Ala, Dallas County, ALA, area, if I remember correctly.

If you are interested, please write. I certainly share/compare with any "10th cousin" when I can. Sometimes it works for all involved.

I know Frank sent you excellent material. I have done gene search only about 30 years now, started in high school as a kid, but I moved this year, and much is still boxed.
