Re: Peter & Ann Adams of Texarkana ,Texas

In Reply to: Peter & Ann Adams of Texarkana ,Texas by WANDA COOK of 608

Hi,

I found the 1880 Cass Co., Texas Census which listed the family members at that time.

I didn't find the 1900 Cass Co. or Bowie Co. Census. Therefore it's difficult to tell which county Ann died in.

I searched through the Bowie Co. records that are online but didn't find her. You have two alternatives. The first is to look at the Texarkana Genealogical Society's web site, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txkusa/ or contact them and ask if they have death records.

You can also contact the Bowie County Clerk, www.co.bowie.tx.us/ips/cms/countyoffices/countyClerk.html and ask how far back their death records go.

I searched through the cemeteries that are online but didn't find the Adams family. Not all of the cemeteries are indexed and not all of the indexes are complete.

I did find the Bell, Edmonson,Hendrix,Stuart,&Stewart Family's of AR & TX family tree, ancestry.com. It didn't have any info about Ann's death but did have Peter's and other family members.

Most public libraries in larger cities provide free access to Ancestry.com if you have a library card.

I did find:
