Genero RODRIQUEZ was supposedly born
at Fort Davis, Davis Texas on or about 10/1890. I have always
been told that the records were burned when the Fort burned.
If anyone can give information regarding records for that period
of time, I would be very grateful.

for information on Austin
family. His parents were William
Luther (Hoopie) Watts
& Livie Anne Bickle. Hoopie's mother was
Lucindi Grubbs, married to some
Watts or other. Sure would like to know his name! He disappered
in the Davis Mountains. She later married a Manning. Hoopie had an older sister, Nora, she married Myler Estep. They had several step-siblings named Manning.
Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

DICKSON, ROBERTS & STOUTSENBERGER: I'm looking for any information on
my ancestors who lived in the Fort Davis area about 1880- 1900.
My gggrandparents were named Morgan Price and Nancy
ROBERTS, who were from Illinois. They raised Angoras on a
ranch there, where my great uncle, Henry DICKSON, worked
as a ranch hand. The ROBERTS family had at least three
children: Sam (who was busted for stealing cattle), Frank,
and my gggrandfather, George Washington ROBERTS. About
1888, Geo. Wash. married Frances Adelina STOUTSENBERGER
(nee BOWLES), and they had nine children. Sam married
Emma BRAGG in Presidio Co. in 1881. In about 1895 my ggrandparents
moved to the Guadalupe Mountains. Happy to share what I have
on these families. Write to me at my e-mail address or at 2220
Marshall Way, Sacramento, CA 95818-3546. Join the BOWLES
researchers list---ask me how!

share valuable information with other descendants of the following
West Texas area residents. This couple met in West Texas, married
and lived a short while in Chihuahua, Mexico, and finally made
their home in Van Horn, TX (having at least seven children total).
Santiago ABREO or ABREU (b~1880) and Anita Skaggs
WHITE or BLANCO (b~1890). Don't hesitate to contact
me, cousin. Even if you don't see the exact first name above,
it's genuinely possible that I have something you need and you
have something I need. Good luck with your research
