Thanks for all the information! I was reading someone else's query regarding the Tehuanaca Cemetery, and since Mary Frances Adams' property which she inherited after Thos. Barrington's death, was on the Tehuanaca River, I'm thinking there might be some of them buried there. Now I want to go back there next summer and find out more. Thought you might be interested in the following paragraph taken from a book of Freestone County history. This is article No.047 and headed, "James W. Overstreet" by Mrs. Wanda O. Hickey.
"James W. Overstreet and his wife, Frances Blakely Overstreet came to Freestone County, Texas around 1858 from Newton County, Mississippi.It is believed they came here with their friends and relatiives, the Lees, Barringtons, Williamsons, and several of Francis Blakely's brothers.
Little is known of the Overstreet family in Freestone County. James and his sons were farmers and resided around the Cotton Gin Community. Both James and Francis are buried in the Cotton Gin Cemetery."
My grandmother, Ollie Downing, daughter of Caldonia and her 2nd husband, William Downing, referred to some cousins of her mother, Caldonia, as Jim and Tom Overstreet. In the 1900 Census, James Overstreet and family are found in Shawnee, Oklahoma, where Caldonia lived with her Downing children.
How fun to have new cousins, Daniel. Wish I had started all this 20 years ago (but it wouldn't have been so good without the Internet.)
