William F. and Nancy Melvina WELBORN CABANISS, great-grandparents, moved from Jackson County, AL to Titus County, TX about 1880 and in 1892 moved to Arapaho, Custer County, OK.


At a Cabaniss family reunion a book was displayed of ancestor Henry Cabaniss, French Huguenot immigrant of July 1700.

At home I looked over bits of family history gathered from my grandmothers. I wanted to verify family legends the grandmothers told. THE GENEALOGY BUG BIT!

Around my family tree I found patriots, pioneers, preachers, farmers, merchants, loggers, teachers, weavers, millwrights, blacksmiths, engineers, shipmasters, tanners, painters and innkeepers! The women kept the farm going while the patriots were away, tended the ill, and served as midwives. A great-great grandmother, widowed, ran a livery stable.
