States: Texas: Shackelford
I am interested in learning anything about my line that came to Texas c. 1858. Thomas Allen McCarty came with his third wife, Ruth Wakefield, and his sons Preston (b. 1840) and Francis Marion (b. 1833), Warwick or Ferwick (1850-1908), Melvin (1850) and his daughters Jeanetta Angeline (1846-1831) and Catherine Cerelda (1848-1908).
Jeanetta Angeline McCarty married Joseph Alansing Browning, a Texas Ranger situated out of Fort Griffin and Catherine Cerelda McCarty married John W. Newcomb on May 8, 1868 in Fort Griffin.
Francis Marion McCarty married Geriah Lee and had at least one son, James, b.about 1859.
I would love to hear from anyone with information on the descents of any of these individuals.
