Query: Upchurch

Hello, I am trying to do some geneological research on my family.
My father says his father was at one time the sherrif of Wood County. But I cannot find any records supporting such claim. Could you help me?
His name is John Benjamin Upchurch “Doc”
He would of been “in office” sometime between 1910-1953
I appreciate any information you can find.
Thank you!

Query: Davis

A post on the Wood County Rootsweb Message Board is looking for information on the marriage of L. H. Davis and wife Mary E. Kennedy. It references Davis as in Wood County on the 1880 census. He is also looking for parents of daughter Linnie Hoover Davis‘s husband Thomas Nathaniel White.

More details are on the message board at this link:
http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.texas.counties.wood/596/mb.ashx where you can also respond and contact the person who is seeking the information.

Query: McWhirter

I am seeking information about the death of Jasper Green McWhirter b.1868 AL Marion Co and died 1902 Wood Co.TX as a result of walking on the RR tracks. He left 6 children to be reared by his sister, Mary Caroline McWhirter Harbin and spouse, George Washington Harbin.
Jasper Green’s wife, Mary Silvania Harper Tucker, had died in 1901 Wood Co.TX.
I would greatly appreciate more information on the subject family.
I will remit or donate for the information.
They should be in the Wood Co.Quitman Tx cemetery records.

McWhirter/Harper descendant
