Nancy, there are 254 counties in TX, and history covers over 150 years. You might consider adding a little bit to your query, if you'd like some help. Rule of thumb for genealogy queries is: NAMES, DATES, or approximate dates, and LOCATIONS. On your list of surnames are some pretty common ones, and they really need a little something. Availability and information included in records vary over time, so dates are very important. Do all these surnames fit into one family? I realize you may not have exact dates on all your ancestors, but somewhere along the line, dates will be there - the birth of a child, a marriage etc.
