|Bio and Links|
My 4th Great Grandfather Lane came to Texas by 1835 and settled in a Stephen F Austin colony. His son, Alfred Lane married Charles Goodnight's older sister, Elizabeth. The Goodnights came to Texas in 1850.|
Charles Goodnight of the Goodnight Loving Trail fame, and Alfred Lane, an early Texas Ranger, were on a trail drive. Alfred had a dream that his family was in danger from Indians and told his brother-in-law, Charles, he would have to go home. Not long after he departed, Charles Goodnight and the other trail drivers heard yells and screams of an Indian battle coming from Cement Mountain, Texas. By the time Charles reached Alfred, who was dead, on Cement Mountain the battle was over and the Indians had left. Concerned the Indians might return and scalp Alfred, Charles buried him on Cement Mountain and returned to the trail drive. On his way home from the train drive, he left the other trail drivers and retrieved his brother-in-law's decaying body off of Cement Mountain to take it home to Alfred's wife (his sister) and children for burial in Palo Pinto Co., Texas. Charles called Alfred "a splendidly brave man."
I am very interested in Genealogy. My closest family lines are: Ashcraft, Cornelius, Crow, Cuberson, Eastwood, Garrison, Goodnight, Johnston, Key, Lane, Moore, Newton, Prather, Price, PROPHIT, Runnells, Smith, Snidow, Swearingen, Webb, Whilkins, Williams, and Williamson.
Only some of what I enter will be family connected.

It was interesting what you put on your Memorial page. I live in Amarillo, Texas, which is close to the Charles Goodnight Museum. My family of Baker's also came from Missouri and they were part of the original land owners in Peter's Colony. The reason I am so interested in what you wrote on William McCombs Memorial. My family is Lott, Smith and Elbert Families of Denton, Texas. My families married into the Boyd and McComb families. There were so many different marriages that I did the genealogy of the McComb Families also. I have been doing genealogy for over 20 years. As I get older I am going through my family tree and filling in the information I missed.
Do you have any pictures of her daddy?

|Chad Thorson||RE: RWS, James Garrison|
Here's my family relations information:
James Garrison + Ester Ann Roberts; Samuel Lee Garrison + Martha Conlee; Abraham C. Buffington + Mary Ann Garrison; William Howard Rainwater, Jr. + Mary Ann Buffington; Mark Rainwater + Leo Nadine Padgett; Burnice Rainwater + Vernon Thorson (My grandparents) So I guess my math was off, James Garrison would be my 6th grandfather.
|Chad Thorson||RE: RWS, James Garrison|
Yes in researching my family tree I found out I'm am related to James Garrison. I believe on my father's mother's side. Where would I go to get a DNA check?

I guess thanks, not that I know what to do now that I'm managing my Grandparents. This is something I've never done before.
I never knew any of Grady's family except for Uncle John. He lived in Waco and we would go visit from time to time. I never knew my Great Grandad. Sounds like you had fond memories from your story. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for the transfer. Have a great New Year
I grew up around my grand parents, they owned a little country store a mile from my home. We were in their home almost every day. My Uncle was also very close and we saw his family regularly and I never heard of a deceased infant of my grand parents. It is very interesting what you can learn from the internet about your family. Thanks for the reply.
