This Hudson line begins here with John Hudson and Elizabeth Doris Allen. But much of the information comes from the research of Jewell Norman Hudson during the 1950’s and 60’s, and documented in that cousin’s book, “Descendents of Jesse Hudson and Related Families”. This geneaolgist has a letter from that relative to my grandmother written during that research. We are all very grateful for the hard work, careful investigation and documenting that Jewell did in that effort for the family.

Dyches Family Genealogy
This line of the Dyches family begins with:
Josiah and Lucinda came from South Carolina to St. Tammany Paris Louisiana in the early 1800s. It is believed that Joseph died before 1820. Lucinda and most of her children came to Texas before 1830. Their son Joseph Josiah Dyches, and at least one other son fought in the Texas Revolution. One of their duaghters, Jerusha D. Dyches, married David Hutcheson McFadin, who fought in the Battle of San Jacinto. The McFadin home became a historical landmark, and some of the Dyches family were buried on their land.
Holliday Family Genealogy
This Holliday Line comes from the lineage of
William Holliday and Anne Ayres of Wilkes County, GA. The name Ayres runs deep through this family, used both for first and middle names. It is from this line that John Henry (Doc) Holliday was born. Doc Holliday was from the line of William Holliday, Jr – brother of Ayres Holliday.
Northcutt or Northcott?
So which is it – Northcutt or Northcott?
Well, the truth is…. it’s both. Like many families before the times when legal birth certificates pretty much set things in stone, different family members would often vary their spelling of the names – and this certainly applied to the most literate of people as we (Soap, Soape and Swope, for example are all of the same line in this genealogy).
The family history of the Northcutt / Northcott line in these pages appears to begin with Hosea Northcutt, of whom we know almost nothing. We have a little more information on his son William, on whom most of this genealogy is based.
William Northcutt and Sarah Williams had five children that we know of.
Sweazea Family Genealogy
This Sweazea (pronounced Sway-zee) line comes from Mathias Sweazea and Hannah Lucinda Stephenson.
One of their daughters was Elizabeth Sweazea, who married Nathaniel H. Wilson. He was the father of Belle Wilson Bingham. The Sweazea family has been traced by other researchers back to John Sweesy of England who was born before 1600.
Keith Family Genealogy
This Keith line begins with William Keith of Ireland. Two sons are known to him at this time; and so far only one (Nichodemus Keith) has been thoroughly researched. The line of this site comes through one of his sons – John Birden Keith. Through this Keith line, some notable people can be traced, among which are singer\songwriter Willie Nelson and actress Lana Turner.
William Keith was born probably between 1730 and 1739 in Ireland. It is unknown at this time who he married or when he died.
Children of WILLIAM KEITH
|NICHODEMUS KEITH||b. Abt. 1755, Ireland.|
|Gabriel KEITH||b. unknown|
This Cartwright line begins with Thomas Peter Cartwright, Jr. and Elizabeth Shaw.
Their daughter Clarissa married John Thomas Blount. Two of their other children, Matthew Winston Cartwright and William Peter Cartwright fought at the Battle of San Jacinto in the Texas Revolution.
Blount Family Genealogy
The Blount Family
The real expert on the Blount family line is a relative named Teri. She has done so much research on the Blount line that you could spend a year just wading through what she has posted on Rootsweb.com.
The following photo was taken at the Blount family reunion in Brady, McCulloch County, Texas in the 1960s:
This Blount line begins with:
Frederick Blount and Miorum (Mary) Koen? – (Koen may have been her maiden name, but we do not know for sure yet). Koen is used as a middle name and even a first name in several descendants, and there are some Koen families in the census in their vicinity.
One of his sons came to Texas and most of their family followed in the early 1800′s. That was the family of John Thomas Blount and Clarissa Ann Cartwright. Two of Clarissa’s brothers, Matthew and William Peter Cartwright fought at the Battle of San Jacinto in the Texas Revolution.
Attaway Family History on this site
This Attaway genealogy is focused on the family of
John William Attaway and Matilda Virginia Northcott
The known beginning of the line is with John’s grandmother:
Information from the Craig family bible has been generously provided by a Craig cousin that reveals a lot about the Attaway family. The father of John William, Nancy Emmer, and Sallie Attaway was John T. C. Attaway; and according to family consensus, the “C” must have stood for “Carlton.” To take it one step further, J.W. Attaway’s first child named a son “Thomas Carlton,” which suggests that the father of J. W. Attaway was named John Thomas Carlton Attaway. The same cousin has also provided a copy of Sallie Craig’s death certificate, which confirms the trail that the census records lead us to. Thanks to another cousin in Sallie Craig’s line, we now have a copy of a 150 year old marriage license for John T C Attaway and Belinda Beck. We have found J. W. Attaway’s mother Sisly in the 1850 census along with his father’s brother, William.
According to family historians, John William’s father J.T.C. Attaway was a sandy-haired Irishman who came here from Ireland as a young boy. The Ireland connection has not been found yet. The 1840 Talbot county Georgia census finds him at the age of 5 living with his brother William and mother Sisly Attaway. The assumption is that she was widowed.
John T.C. Attaway married Belinda (Malinda) Beck, a young woman of French descent, who died young.
Bingham Ancestry for this site
This line of Binghams has been very difficult to trace. When we began this search, no living member of our family that we could find even knew the names James S. Bingham and Lavica Ann Dyches Bingham. By participating in a Family Tree DNA project in May 2004, we got a match with two other participants.
An explanation of the process best comes from that site, which states “The Y-Chromosome is passed from father to son unchanged, except for a mutation about every 500 generations. Testing the y chromosome provides a genetic finger print consisting of 12 or 25 markers. This finger print is then compared against that of other men in the Surname Project by matching the markers. By comparing the fingerprints, or markers you can determine if you are related”. Family Tree DNA currently has over 800 surname projects. To see if there is one for a surname you are interested in, go to this site.
This line begins with James S. Bingham and Lavica Ann Dyches.
