States: Texas: Gonzales
In January of 2002 I drove into Gonzales and glanced at the "History of Gonzales County" prepared by the genealogical society of that county. After reviewing this book I located a hanging/family file that was prepared by one of the local ladies (Mrs. T.D. "Freda Ferguson" Crews, I believe) of that community. Also, in the "History of Gonzales Co." Mrs Crews indicated that she lived in the Isaac Newton Smead home and I would love to know the connection. The library was closing when I located this file and the xerox machine had been turned off for the day. I live hundreds of miles away and am not anticipating being in the area again for some time. The file name is Isaac Newton Smead. In this file is information on my "Baquet" family. William C. Baquet married Hattie Smead, she died prior to the 1900 census but several of their children are listed in her sister's household (Kate Whisenhunt). Another of Hattie and Kate's sisters was Jessie Smead who married Amiel Edward Scheske. One of their children or grandchildren eventually was mayor of Gonzales... I need someone to copy this rather large file on the library xerox, quote me a price for this service and all other costs (mailing and their time, of course!). I would love to hear from anyone who could help me out on this... I have also contacted the researcher who is listed as doing professional research in the area but have not heard from her yet... Thanks to the kind soul that can help me... IN ADVANCE!!!
