Looking for information on McCain, Crenshaw and Salmon families, listed in 1860 and 1870 Navarro County census. Malinda Crenshaw married James Salmon in 1858 in Freestone Co. Tex. In 1860 several Salmon families were neighbors, including James and wife, M. A. It is possible he died during CW and his wife remarried. It has also been said that Malindas mother married a McCain. The 1870 census shows a M. McCain with 7-year-old gr-dau, Malinda Salmon. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

I am interested in obtaining information on the John Hanson Ladd family. I have a family Bible containing my ancestors names with birth and death dates. It indicates thatJohn Newton Ladd, son of John H. and Arka M. Ladd was b. 28 May 1863 in Corsicana, Navarro Co. Another son, James, is also listed, born Oct. 25, 1859, but no mention of place. At some time, this family moved to the Williams Ranch in Mill Co., where John H. Ladd is buried. I will gladly share information from the Bible to anyone who may be interested.
