Gordon's Of Rusk

Hi

I am searching for Gordons of Texas. Below is a descendancy chart on what I know of the family.

What I know:

They came to texas before 1848. In talking with others researching a similar line, the family came to texas in nacadoches. Some stayed in that area, some wen south to houston, and some went north to tyler.

Mine went north towards tyler and stayed in Rusk, Cherokee Co., texas.

My census say they were from Alabama. Other researchers believe Ga.

My family can be found in the 1850-1880 census of CHEROKEE Co. Then later NAVARRO Co., HENDERSON Co, city of FT WORTH, and TOM GREEN Co.

Any help is appreciated.
