States: Texas: Kaufman
I am hoping someone has the cemetery book for Kaufman County and can lookup any Minchews(Minshews) who might be buried in Kaufman County. Specifically I am looking for Nancy Minchew-may be spelled Minshew-and George Minchew(Minshew). Nancy was born about 1820 in Georgia and was the widow of Mortimer Minchew. George Minchew-born about 1817- was her brother in law. George Minchew murdered a man in Georgia in 1853 and the family left Georgia and he was never prosecuted. I am told he died in Kaufman County, Texas. Nancy Minchew's husband Mortimer was murdered by William Burgay in Bibb County, Georgia in 1868. Nancy was living as a widow in Kaufman County in 1880. George and his family could have been living there as well but keeping a low profile as I cannot locate them. Anything information on these folks would be appreciated.
