I did a little research in Jack Co,Tx. in 1900 and Estell Walker b.Aug 1883- is living with Will&Mollie Combs b. Mar 1872. He is listed as a brother-in-law,so Molly is his sister.I found her on a death record for a child(William W. Combs) and she is listed as Mary Walker and he as William Combs. If we could find her death record it might tell who the parents are,since his doesn't. Mollie and Estell both list their Dad as being born in Tenn and Mother in Alabama.-willie
Hi Robin my Evans came from Morrow county, Ohio and Greene county and Montgomery county, PA, They were also in Marshall county, WV for a short time. I haven't found a connection to TX or TN. They seem to have stayed in PA and I believe that is where they came when they came from Wales
Hi there Robin
Why am I here, well I was intrigued with the name "Finest Estell",so being a little like, what I see-have to find person, I found your site and finished up listening to Alabama singing "Angels among Us" . What a fabulous way of welcoming some one to your site. Congratulations you really did win me with Alabama. Now in regards to helping to find your "Finest Estell" I'm afraid would have me baffled.
Thank You and I enjoyed my visit
I would love to get together for lunch, Robin! Another one of our favorites has just moved to Burleson and wants to come this way soon - Debbie Blanton McCoy. And then there is Janice Tracy just north of Dallas. Maybe we can all have lunch somewhere and get to know one another soon! I would love it.
I wish I could copy and paste in here I have found a possible lead to your Amanda. I have the census copied for 1870 1880 look in Wayne county IN for Charles Knecht in 1870 he has a child in the home named Amanda Durstler in 1880 her name is Dasher and she is listed as a servant. Her parents were from PA in 1860 there are too Dasher families in IN one with two sets of twins and two other children it maybe they gave her up because of a large family What do you think?
