Request for information (and Wood County birth records 1907-1917) of relative who lived in Quitman or Oak Grove Tex. in late 1800s & early 1900s
I would appreciate any help in finding birth records of my mother and her siblings. I went to Quitman in 1983 and again in 1985. Was told the court house had burned and the records lost. I have since learned the court house burned much earlier that that.
How can I go about getting copies of birth records and more information that may be available?
They were sent to Buckner’s orphanage at an early age. Their father was Burwell James Brown and their mother, Mary Jane Riley Brown.
Any other information would be appreciated. I imagine their is a charge for copies of documents.
My grandmother was Mary Jane Riley Brown married to Burwell James Brown
great grandparents John Wesley Riley and Jane Elizabeth Forbis Riley
Thank you, Nan Maedgen
