Query: Rhone

I am looking to obtain a copy of the will of James S. Rhone who died in November, 1899. He is buried in Wood County along with three of his wives. I have since found that that he has a will #476, Book F; pages 37-52. Not all these pages are his will, but it also includes an inventory. How would I be able to obtain a copy of this will? Can some kind soul out there help me out?

Query: Paulson

My name is Tom Paulson. My grandfather, Thomas Layefette Paulson,
was born in Wood County on October 13, 1874. He died in Brownwood,
TX in 1923. We are trying to find if there is a record of a birth
certificate on him.

He had a sister named Ida Elizabeth Paulson born in 1873 or 1874. Is
there a record of a birth certificate on her?

Thank you
Tom Paulson

Research Rule #2

James Tanner‘s Rule No. 2 (Focus on more recent sources and documents before you try to jump back in time) for genealogical research is pretty powerful but his rules one and three are absolutely key to getting started (or restarted) on your family research.

You can take all three in (and perhaps put them on the wall to look at over and over again) at his blog Genealogy’s Star at this link: http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com/2011/08/it-is-both-who-and-what-you-know.html

LaHoma Clanton 1926-2011

Funeral services for Wood County Genealogical Society member LaHoma Clanton are scheduled for 10 a.m., Saturday, August 13 at Lowe Funeral Home Chapel at Quitman. Burial will be at Memorial Gardens at Mineola. The family will receive friends from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, August 12 at the funeral home.

LaHoma has been a member of the society since it was formed in 1983 and has served faithfully in many jobs and as a participating member for the 28 years the society has existed. She is a friend whose companionship and service will be missed by her family and her friends in her church, the community, and the society. She was a member of the Clover Hill Baptist Church.

LaHoma was a life-long resident of Wood County from her birth April 23, 1926 to her death August 9, 2011. Preceding her in death were her husband H. J. “Doc” Clanton and son Anthony “Red” Clanton.

She is survived by sons Harris Clanton, Gregg Clanton, Craig Clanton, and Kevin Clanton and daughter Deborah Kinsey and 16 grandchildren and 14 great-grand children, and nieces and nephews.

Query: Fitzgerald

My name is Beth Coats. I am researching the Coats family
in Rains Co. Julie A. Fitzgerald married Robert Coats about 1863. She was born about 1841 and according to some of our family was the daughter of Ambrose. I can find nothing
to confirm this. I do know Ambrose came from Missouri and
Julie was born in Missouri. My question is who were the
brothers of Ambrose Fitzgerald and did they reside in Wood
Co. now Rains?
Maybe she is one of their daughters. Any
help you can give me woud be appreciated. Beth
