SOME MATAGORDA COUNTY, TEXAS RECORDS

The following information was graciously submitted by Hallie Whittington Garrison Please contact Hallie with your questions or comments.

These marriages were copied from Clayton Library sources by Bobbie Lee of Old Ocean, Texas on March 13, 1981. We were both researching the Hobbs family who moved from Conecah County, Alabama in 1852 to Matagorda County, Texas. My line is Jesse Hobbs; hers is Mary Hobbs, Jesse's sister who married William O. Wofford in DeWitt County in 1858.
