Hi Irene, and all that posted on this thread. William Wesley Herring is my great-grandfather also. I'm researching on William's father's [John Herring/b:NC]father and his brothers that came from Ireland. I don't have any names YET. However, I had an idea to look for Lewis Herring of the group, only because William named one of his son's Lewis. I have found names have been recycled a lot over many years. It's just a 'grasping any straw' idea, but you never know unless you track anything that comes along. Sometimes you hit pay dirt. Carol Norton, in this thread, you gave me a bit of information I didn't know. Thank you. Have you found any other information about the father and brothers that came from Ireland? I hope you see this. I know your message is a bit old. I'll keep plugging away. Just some extra information on. I got information from familysearch dot org today. I didn't know John W. Herring ran an underground railroad to help free slaves in the Texarkana area. The info also said he had a father and six brothers from Ireland. [not new information, but it stated this] I would like to know what John Herring's wife, Susan A.'s, maiden name is. I have a picture of Susan holding Cullen Montgomery Herring when he was little. She looks like a Native American to me. She was a beautiful lady.
