First, won't be last. Most of my family is in either Boston or the Carolinas. My folks moved to Texas when I was 10. When I was a Sr. in high school, they moved back to the Carolinas. I moved in with a friend until college. On my first date with my (now) wife (from Alabama), I told her I wasn't leaving Texas, so she should probably keep that in mind as things progressed.

I’m a naturalized Texan. I was born in NM but am here for good. On my maternal grandmother’s side that family was here so far back they lived here when it was still Mexico. My grandmother would tell me stories of grandparents (or maybe great grandparents) who had neighbors who were moving when TX was annexed because they were proud, “Mexicans.” Her family new better than to abandon their home. Thank God for that decision.

I wasn't born here but I'm pretty happy about the fact that I have chosen to be here, raise a family here, live out my life here and have my ashes scattered here. Home is where you hang your hat and I don't think a person could find a better place to do that than Texas.

That's going to depend on which lineage I go through. The shortest is through either of my grandfathers. Both of them were born elsewhere but moved here as young men, so 2 generations. My paternal grandmothers lineage is at least 4 generations in Texas. Then there's my maternal grandmother's side, where I'm at least the 6th generation, possibly 7th. I've got the records in my great grandfathers personal memoir. I'm going to have to pull that out when I get home.

Not sure where my great grandfather was born, but he rode with the James Gang.. My grandfather's name was Jesse James Cheatom and he was born here in Texas... The gang had fled Missouri and come to Texas to hide out from the Feds n Pinkerton boys so that makes me at least 3 generations maybe 4 or more... My grandmother on that side was a Cherokee, and never had a birth certificate, but supposedly came from northeast Okla or SW Mo. My grandpa was sure fun to sit and listen to... He was born in 1883 and lived to be a hunert... Died in October... If he'd made it to January, he'd a been a hunert n 1... Was real healthy and mentally sharp until about 6-8 months before his death... He plowed a 1+acre garden with a dang merry-tiller when he was well into his 90's!! I'm a proud Texan, but come from a bunch of crooks!

Here's some work on our family history my Aunt did.

Quote:
Your paperwork went in a few days ago and if all goes well you will be verified as a direct descendant of a Revolutionary War soldier.

1. His name was George Ridley who was born in Virginia Jan. 1737. He was not a spring chicken when he fought in the French and Indian War and later in the Revolution. He was called a Over Mountain Man. If your are old enough to remember Mel Gibson's movie "The Patriot" the location and battles depicted were the ones that our Captain Ridley fought in real life. He managed to sire 16 children and they all lived to adulthood. No mean feat in those days. After the war was over he moved his big family on rafts to settle in middle Tennessee. Right after landing they were attacked by Indians so after the battle he and his sons built a fort were the family lived for several years. I have a drawing of the fort done by the historian, Lyman Draper.

2. We are from his 10th child, Thomas Ridley, Esq, the first Sheriff of Williamson County, Tennessee. The Civil War Battle of Franklin took place on part of his land. None of his sons lived so we descent from one of his daughters, Mary Margaret.

3. Mary Margaret married a Virginian, George Jefferson Rine in 1830. The wedding took place in Nashville in the home of Captain George and Sarah Ridley. After the birth of sons, George and Thaddeus, George J. and Mary M. moved into newly opened Choctaw lands in Mississippi. They became Mormons and left Yalobusha Co., Miss. to travel to a Colony some where between Medina Co. and Boerne,Texas. George J. never took a second wife and soon quit the Colony to take up ranching. He also served in a local militia to defend against the Indians and later in the Civil War (at 57 yrs). He and his wife were buried some where around Pipe Creek near Bandera.

4. Thaddeus Rine was born in 1832 and left his family when he was about 14. He lived in other peoples homes as a laborer. He married Missouri Anne Pittman probably in Shelby Co., Tennessee. The Memphis area was a boom town of that era and was a good place to find work. In 1863, after his parent's Mormon phase was over he and Missouri Anne moved to be near them in the Bandera area. He quickly became the 2nd Sheriff of Bandera County and serve till late 1864. The Governor of Texas placed him in the Texas Home Guard, along with his Sheriff duties, to be sure to keep the settlers safe from Indians and Mexican bandits. He did not allow him to join the War until it's last days. After the War Thaddeus signed the Amnesty papers and quickly became Sheriff again. His father held out till the last day before signing. Thaddeus and his cronies on the Petit Court in Bandera managed to keep the Carpet Baggers at bay for the long years of Reconstruction. They were quite devious and down right sneaky with the dealings with the yankees. Grandma and I found records of their antics in the old jail and we gave them with his photo to the Bandera Courthouse. Thaddeus and Missouri Anne had 13 children and we are from Francis Josephine Rine, born in 1865.

5. Francis remembered her childhood as free and wonderful. She would tell me what it was like growing up in Bandera, riding their horses, ice skating on the ponds (really) and all the family weddings and parties. All that ended when her father forbade her to marry a gambler. She was head strong and married the next man who asked, Gus Huebner, Sr. They eloped to San Antonio. The marriage produced about 11 children. I am not sure because several died very early. I was about 9 or 10 when she had her accident and died so I can not personally say that her life was not all that happy. Others have told me that she did not have a good marriage and I found her divorce papers from Gus. They remarried about 3 years later. She was my favorite and I loved her very much. One of her sons was Gus Huebner, Jr. who was a home builder.

6. Gus Jr. met and married Ilma Marie Gembler. She was barely 16 and a little spoiled and wanted her way. Her mother died when she was nine and the baby of the family. Her father doted on her and her sister Edith and finally agreed to the marriage. Your grandma can remember the older people talking about that wedding and the party afterward. It must have been a dilly because it lasted three days. (You probably know the sad story of their lives-no need to retell it.) The marriage produced two children, Inez Marie born March 20, 1913 and three years later, Merl Arthur was born.

7. Inez Marie Huebner met George Clifton Guthrie in 1935. He was a soldier from Smithville, Oklahoma and was stationed at Fort Sam Houston. They married September 9, 1936 in Boerne, Texas with only one witness, Ilma Marie Huebner. Our family was very poor and the Depression had hit them hard. Inez kept the marriage secret because she would be fired from her job at the Telephone Company if married. The secret was not kept very long because I was born December 14, 1937. Fourteen months later a son was born on February 27, 1939. Mammy and your grandma swear that he was born on leap year and the doctor wrote another date so Clifton William Guthrie could have a birthday every year.

8. Now we come to you, the eighth person in a bloodline reaching back to the Revolutionary War.

I am 5th gen. Grandkids are 7th. Family originally came from England in early 1800. Several “notable” early Tatom’s. A Methodist preacher in Tn/Ky area who had 7 wives. Apparently life with him was hazardous to your health. Another, like S Slick mentioned, was partial to “borrowing” horses. One gentleman spelled his last name as Tatom, Tatem, Tatum, & Tathem in his own handwritten will! One Tatom died at Battle of Goliad. Looking up family history at old courthouses is interesting.

I just check cause I couldn’t remember but I’m 10th generation Texan! Jesus P Ybarbo (our grandpa) was born in 1857 in Nacadoches, TX and died 1956.
He was a Texas Ranger, he spent his youth as a cowboy driving herds of Longhorns cattle to Kansas City and Abilene before joining the Rangers. His great great grand father was Antonio Gil Y’Barbo one of the 1st settlers in the nacogdoches area before it was Tx he got a land grant from the queen of Spain

Yea, my family name is also misspelled... Family originally came from Yorkshire, England in middle 1700's... Proper spelling is Cheatham... Most of my dad's brothers had their name "corrected", but my did nor I ever did... I'm the end of the road for the name since my son has already passed. Daughter will carry the lineage, but not the name... My grandsons are 6th generation Texans though with hopefully many more generations to come...
