Joseph Hayden ROUTH

My great grandfather was Joseph Hayden Routh who sold the land where Ballinger is locaded to the railroad in 1886. I was born in my grandmother's house at the foot of the hill on 8th street in 1919. My grandmother was Emma Amanda Melvina Routh Nash. My grandfather, William Perkins Nash, was a type setter at the Newapaper. I would like any information and pictures about the old days and my ancestors.

Greetings to all ...

I am descended from the ROUTH family of Runnells County (Ballinger) Texas. Unfortunately, that's about all the details I have on this line of the family.

What I do know is my that my ROUTH family had three children: Nell Marie, born: May 20, 1909, Kathryn, born: February 14, 1908, and Will Edwin, born: Unk.

Father's name is A. M. Routh, Mother's name is unknown.
I believe this line is connected to the marriage of Emma A. ROUTH and William P. NASH, married 5 June 1890 in Runnells County, Texas.

There was also a probate case in Runnells County, Texas involving this ROUTH Family in 1914. I'm assuming it was probably due to a parent's death.

If anyone has information on this family, I'd really appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks !

Thanks for posting the death cert. Still not sure how it may fit into my tree, but eventually I'll figure it all out. I have decided to post a scan of an old post card I inherited after NELL MARIE ROUTH passed away. I'm not really sure who is in the picture, but the card was mailed to a Mrs. A.M. Routh just after the turn of the century. Youll notice it was originally mailed to OAKLAND, Texas, then evidently forwarded to MULDOON, Texas. Both towns are now essentially "Ghost Towns" according to my research. If anyone can help me make sense of the clues here, I'd certainly appreciate it.

Joseph Hayden Routh's five children were James Kensington Routh, William Amercrombie Routh, Emma Amanda Routh, Joseph Hayden Routh Jr. and Josie Bradshaw Routh. However, Emma was also known by Amanda Malvina Routh or A. M. Routh so I don't know how your father's name could be A. M. Routh.

I didn't find the information on the 1914 probate case. Could you tell me more information about the 1914 probate case?

Married: November 18, 1893 Ballinger, Runnels County, Texas

The probate case was actually dated July 14, 1916 and concerned the children of Joseph Hayden Routh, Jr. He died in Runnels County on 24 December 1915. Although I haven't yet obtained it, it concerned Kathryn, Nell Marie, and Will Edwin Routh who were minors at the time of his death.

It is most likely that the post card was sent to Mrs. Emma "Amanda Melvina" Routh as it is dated 1908. I've speculated that she was named her paternal grandmother, Amanda Melvina Murrell.

Muldoon is a town in southwestern Fayette County, Texas 10 miles north of Flatonia, and 16 miles southwest of La Grange.

Since it was originally addressed to her in Oakland, Texas then forwarded to Muldoon the possibility exists that perhaps Mrs. A.M. Routh was previously residing in Oakland around that time.

There are six communities named Oakland active in 1908. I think the most probable are these two:

The Oakland in Colorado County is just southwest of the intersection of Farm roads 532 and 2144, on the Lavaca county line eight miles south of Weimar in northwest Colorado County. It is on a site originally granted to James Bowie. As early as 1844 the community, then called Prairie Point, had a store on the stage line between Columbus and Gonzales. In 1884 the town had 200 inhabitants, a public school, three general stores, a saloon, a steam cotton gin, two churches, and grist and saw mills. In 1900 Oakland had a population of 264, and in 1904 the community had one school with sixty-five white pupils and another school with eighty-one black pupils.

The Oakland located Brazoria County is one mile west of Freeport and one mile north of State Highway 36 in south central Brazoria County. Oakland was the name of the plantation of Henry William Munson, who came to the county in 1828 and purchased land from Stephen F. Austin. State highway maps of 1936 showed a church and school at the site, but in 1974 only St. Joseph Church, an adjacent cemetery, and scattered dwellings remained.

Of the two above, I think it most likely she was at one time, located in Oakland, Colorado County. More research is required, however.

There were also towns named Oakland in Cherokee, Houston, Hopkins and Van Zandt Counties.

My father's name isn't A.M. Routh - perhaps I didn't make that clear in the original post. My relation to the Routh family is through my paternal grandmother.

Appreciate your response and interest.
