Looking for Herrage family in Texas, along with Rampy, Huckabee, Rampey
Interesting. I am looking at the chart I have and it mentions:
Nancy Permelia Herrage (born 4/3/1855 and died 1/19/1933) married James Wylie Rampy (born 7/30/1858, died 1/18/1908) in Paint Rock, Texas.
One of their kids Sophia Ella Rampy is my great-grandmother.
Sophia married Ferman Smith.
One of their kids was Bertie Smith who married John Malcolm Huckabee. Those are my grandparents, mother's side of the family.
I don't know where they were married, but both my grandparents and great grandparents lived for many years in Bell County, Texas. I knew them when they lived in Belton.
Grandpa Huckabee owned and operated the Huckabee Wrecking Yard for many years out on Highway 190, west of Belton.
My mother told me both her dad and grandpa Smith above made one dollar a day laying brick streets in Belton and Temple during the Great Depression.
What ?! You exclaim.
Yes, regular red housing bricks, without indents, laid as paving bricks for streets. Those brick streets were still there in the 1950s and early 1960s.
