My great great grandparents, Jesse Wilson Durham and Mary Stephens Durham were from Edgefield County, South Carolina. They moved their family to Texas, sometime in the 1890's to 1900 (?). On the 1910 census, it shows that they settled in Mitchell County, Texas in Cuthbert Village.
Jesse W. Durham was born in 1839 in Barren County Kentucky. Mary Stephens was born in South Carolina, c. 1845, both died and are buried in Dallas, Texas area.
Jesse and Mary's first child was Florence Josephine Durham b. 1866 in Monetta, South Carolina. Since she married Marion M. Padgett in 1888, of Edgefield County, South Carolina, she did not follow her family to Texas. Florence and Marion were my great grandparents, parents to my grandfather Raymond Durham Padgett....
I would enjoy corresponding about family history of the Durham and/or Padgett families. It would be very interesting to know more about when and where the Durhams actually settled in Texas and about their families.
Genealogy is my favorite hobby ~ just like potato chips, just can't stop at ONE :-)
