My Mitchell family came to Texas in 1850 from Alabama through Arkansas and settled in Limestone and Coryell counties but later moved to the Bayside/Aransas pass area. My maternal Newman side were part of Austin's 300 and original settlers in Texas. I myself grew up in the Houston and surrounding areas but have now lived in many states and would love to see where my family fits into the world tree of the past and find current family I know nothing about.

Hello Ms. Mitchell:

I'm a new member of Wikitree and I'm loving it so far, although it's kinda' overwhelming. I'm related to you from the Rogers side. William Ory Wells was my great-grandfather.

Looking forward to continuing the research. I've taken the DNA test from 23andme, but I'd like to take some others.

Again, thanks so much for all your hard work on our family tree!

Hi Rebecca! My name is Don Cline. I have been working on updating Cline Family Records. You have done a great job in loading our Cline line into the tree. Thank you so much! My Great Grandfather was James Knox Polk Cline, which is a son of Jesse Abel Cline.

I am interested in the Jesse Abel Cline that you have created a link for. I also created a record for him (which I probably should not have done) but I didn't catch the duplicate when I created it since the birthdates were 10 years different. I am trying to reconcile the birth dates for him.

I see your reference is the 1860 Census, which shows a Jesse A Cline as 55 Years Old. There are two other Census Records that show him to be 10 years younger, therefore with a birthday in 1815, not 1805. In the 1840 Census Records he is listed as being between 20 and 30. In the 1850 Census Records, Jesse A Cline (with the same family members) is listed as 35 Years Old. His Military Enlistment Records of 1860-61 say he is 45 years old when he enlisted in 1861, which makes sense. I don't think they would accept a 55 year old to enlist but maybe he told a really big lie about his age to get the Enlistment Benefits. I think maybe the two earlier Census Records and his Military Records would lead us to think be was born in 1815.

There is no doubt this is the same person and I need to probably delete my entry and link into your entry instead. Any idea how to handle the birthdate discrepancy? Is there some provision to document that this birthdate is somewhat uncertain?

Thanks! Don Cline

Hi Rebecca,

The Westward Ho/Trails and Wagon Trains Project needs your help!

Regarding profile John Twiddy Baker (1805-1857). Please visit this G2G page to support creating a Westward Ho/Trails and Wagon Trains sticker.

Thanks, your consideration of this request is appreciated!

I found another Nathaniel David Joshua Thomas that I am proposing a merge on. This is very confusing! John and Elizabeth had several kids, three of them married Kirkpatricks. Nancy married William Addition (Buck) Kirkpatrick and they had a daughter Nellie. Mary Jane married Porter Kirkpatrick who was Buck's brother and my great grandfather. This is where it gets bad, Nathanial, Nat as I heard him referred to, married Nellie the daughter of Nancy and Buck. You just can't make this stuff up!
posted by Tammy Kirkpatrick
Oh, wait, this isn't as bad as a thought! Buck was married before Nancy to Rosa and Nellie is his daughter with Rosa. At least he didn't marry his niece!

Yes, I saw that. But there were many close calls back then, lol.

My grandfather was Jack Rogers Newman, married to Lyla Grace Russell. My Great Grandfather was Anderson Knight Newman. Our first Texas ancestor was Joseph Newman, married to Rachel Rabb

Thank you for posting the picture of Anderson Knight Newman, my Great Grandfather. Will share with my mom, Laura Jeanette Newman - she’ll be quite tickled. I read your personal description - saw you have a maternal Newman ancestor in the “Old 300”. My great-g-g-grandfather Joseph Newman (married to Rachel Rabb) was Old 300 and I’m told related somehow to Stephan Austin. Looks like we are distantly related

Hi Rebecca,

I ran a family kit against yours and you match. I'm wondering if our Carter's are related. I haven't explored your tree yet. I see that we may have a Greer connection.

Rebecca, my brother Ray Lowe had a y-DNA match with your father's second cousin James Zilmer Lowe. It would be great if we could connect our Lowe ancestors back in Tennessee!
