The Family History Files of Dalton Ray Phillips

CALLAHAN, GOOCH & PHILLIPS FAMILY LINES IN ARKANSAS, OKLAHOMA & TEXAS

 

 

Welcome!

Many hours of work have been put into the research and documentation of the people listed on these pages. I would like to thank everyone who helped me with my family history research since I started this project in 1995.

The original version of the website can be accessed at this URL:

I believe this new version of the website will let you find pertinent information faster. I am including all of my general notes, which I have not made public before. I hope you will benefit from the information presented here.

I am putting all of this documentation together and presenting it on the web for several reasons - (1) I believe it is important and deserves to be documented  (2) I believe some of it will benefit others at some point in time, (3) it has taken me several years to gather this information - I believe it should be preserved and presented for the benefit of other researchers.

The Big Country

The area of Texas where I grew up is known as the Staked Plains and is also known to the locals as "The Big Country".  That is a fair description for it - "Wide open spaces, with no trees to spoil the view!"

I used to describe it as "the out back of Texas" when I was away in the Navy, telling stories about it.

The Double Mountains near Rotan, Texas

Sacred ground to the Comanche's - a home of the great Chief Quanah Parker - written about by early Spanish Explorers - Double Mountain Ranch owned by the late great Sammy Baugh (legendary football quarterback and coach)

GATHERING AROUND THE OLD OAK TREE

Mostly notes from me but feel free to join in.

It is part personal journal and part guest book - I like to call it my "ponder and reflection" board.

I have not had much action from the guest book since the old one was discontinued by the web vendor some time ago. I would like to get that interest revived. I've posted several comments - hopefully it will spur some of you to make some postings. I really appreciate hearing from you. Then I know someone reads all of this stuff - or at least some of it.

If you want others to contact you, please include your email address in the body of the post.

I do not store email addresses any more.

I tell stories here about some of the people I knew when I was a boy growing up in Rotan, Fisher County, Texas. As far as I know - most of these people are deceased now. In no way do I intend to disrespect them by telling these stories.

My days of striving to make a mark, trying to get ahead, are all over. I am now an old man. To the younger folks, I say - you will be old faster than you think. Use your time and talents wisely. Do not let others take advantage of you, but help others when there is a real need. If you will do that - the money part of it will take care of itself.

The first ten entries from the Guest Register appear below.
