Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Mann Mann.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Looking for the father of James Franklin Houston II in North Carolina or Tennessee Family history states James Franklin Houston III born 1860 was the 3rd so although people keep copying an error that Edward Ray Ross Houston was James II's father. My family history say's otherwise.
  • Omit Edward Ray Ross Houston as great great great grandfather
  • I have a lot of family history info regarding that line starting in PA settling in VA then on to Blount Co now in tennessee ( state line moved) Sam houstons mother stayed at my families house while hers was being built after her husband passed. my family James F had something to do with a fort or barricaded area for the families. my line probably James II used to hang out with Sam houston ( cousin) until he wanted to go off in the woods with the indians & there was a story I dont immediately recall about going up a river by boat & the cousin didn't want to do those wild things. Later yrs Sam Houston talked James into moving to texas to raise/move cattle because there was money to be made in that - then later years Sams son temple talked our James III to move to Oklahoma during a land grab. James II appears to have stayed in texas- he & wife are buried along hwy 171 in hill county texas across from the scofield house ( lacawanna-burned down bet 2006 & 2010 ) James II daughter had married John Scofield. The houstons state they are farmers throught census of those times.
