The following is a message I replied to which was returned to me by that mean ole MailDeamon - couldn't deliver it to Ms. Whitson. Am posting here in hopes she will see it and reply to me.
Also, have surnames Knight, Jamison, Brown and Cheek in my family tree from and/or wound up in Jack Co. Am definitely descended from Roy Knight, G.W. Jamison, William Preston Brown and Francis Marion Cheek. Will gladly correspond with searchers for these folks. (Also, Callahan plays a part, she married Cheek.)
<<I would appreciate it if you could look-up in the Jack Co history book to
see if there is any mention of Zachariah Hutchins and his wife Lydia"Lida"
Fowler. I know that Lydia died 8 Mar 1883 in Jacksboro. They had a son,
James Andrew who was married to Martha Cheek. Martha was born in Jack Co.
Her parents were Jesse Cheek and Mary C. Grable(?). Anything that you can
find on them would be greatly appreciated.
**Dear Ms. Whitson:
My grandmother's mother was a Cheek and she was daughter of Jesse Cheek and
Mary Grable. Martha had to have been her sister!
Do you have any more on Jesse Cheek or Mary Grable? Have run into brick
wall - how 'bout you?
Please email me soon and let's connect - I have more info on Cheeks in Jack
Co. and, bless her soul, my grandmother still lives at the tender age of 94!
So could perhaps answer questions as well.
Thanks for letting me use this medium to set out my feelers - hope I get some takers! :) Laura
