Great posting, MC!

As I mentioned to you privately, I still find conflicts in the death place data regarding Ham McDowell; whether in Montague Co. or Tarrant Co.

I really appreciate the links that you posted. I recently heard from my cousin Ernie Hurst in GA that he'd just found that his ancestry included the founder of Hurst TX, so I was able to send him the bio on the gent.

That link on bios also showed that my Ragsdales lived in the same vicinity in AR as the Wall family, so may provide me a connection as well.

Still trying to figure out the Ragsdale-Tate connection, and the Grapevine Gen. folks told me it was through the wife's family.

Since I live in Grapevine and have been in Tarrant Co. since 1969 (from Dallas), I found the links you provided to be of great interest, as the names and places are all around me. Thanks, again!
