Query: Wright

Alonzo George Wright 1873-1907
My name is Mary Pauline Edwards-Compton and my parents reside in Quitman, Texas on what was referred as Billy Goat Hill many years ago. I am trying to gather some research on my Great-Grand Father, Alonzo George Wright. He was married to Sarah Olga Wright. I cannot find much information about his family, for example of the names of his parents or any siblings. I would appreciate anything that could be of help. I live out of state, so it is hard for me to stop in at the library.

Query: Hamrick

I’d like to correspond with anyone from you society who is searching the Hamrick Line or would help me in that area. Years ago I wrote to Joe L. Hamrick at an Winnsboro address. My last letters were returned. My mother’s maiden name was Hamrick (Dora Murl Hamrick Leverton). At the time Joe and I could not connect our lines, but felt we were related.
