Looking for descendants of Andrew OVERTURF of Driftwood. His sons married JORDAN sisters and his daughters married Thomas DENT, William SHEPARD, and James MIX. Andrew appears in Driftwood circa 1800. There are many Cameron County surnames attached to the descendants including HAYES, STERLING, BARR, MILLER, HOLLAND, BROOKBANK, SMITH, and others.

ROBINSON posted by Rob Robinson on Tuesday, April 1, 1997

I am looking for information to the parents of Walter Fenner(or Fenner Walter) ROBINSON. He was born Feb 2 1891 in Emporium. I have looked in both 1900 and 1910 census and cannot find his family in it. He has two brothers Harry and Edgar. There is one family that matches Walter and Harry but the birth date for Walter is 3 years 4 months off and my grandfather was white and the other Walter is black. I have called the Cameron county clerks office but they do not go farther back than 1893 in birth records. I do find the other Walter and Harry in th county records but none for my grandfather Walter. I am looking for any info on his parents or brothers(or sisters) or any info at all.
