Here is some info that was sent to me,hope there is something here to help u out. joan I ran across your Family Tree Maker User
Home Page on the Net. My
husband's mother was an Offield and I'm always
drawn to that name. I'm not
sure how much I can help but I can tell you a bit
about Offields Texas.

From my research, I find that the Offields came
to Texas in the early
1840s. The patriarch of this line is first found
in the 1850 Washington
Co, TX census. He was born in TN and married in
IL. He had a younger
brother, Jesse Offield Jr, who was my husband's
2nd great-grandfather (that
line settled in MO).

You note in your User Home Page that--
1. Brigham Phelps was your grandfather
2. he was born 23 May 1914 as an Offield
3. he was adopted after his mother died in
childbirth by Betty John Shaw
or Phelps
4. a mention of Breckenridge, TX (this town is
in Stephens Co)

I'm assuming that you have not been able to find
any official adoption
papers. Your messages in this User Home Page
postings on GenForum
indicate that you really have little info.

I have done the Offields in the TX census
starting with 1850 thru 1920.
And, there is info on Rootsweb.com that might
help you. The later is found at

http://searches.rootsweb.com/regional.html

Scroll down to Texas. I found the following in
the Births--

Brigham Phelps Jr--born 27 Dec 1938--Ector Co
Kenneth Lee Phelps--born 19 Jan 1941--Hockley Co

You might want to do some searching in them.

But, back to the census.--you will probably have
to print this out to make
some sense out of it. You will note that there
are no listings in either
1910 or 1920 for Offields in Stephens Co (where
Breckenridge is located).

I'm not sure if the Offields in 1910 1920 will
help you but at least you
will know who is there during those census. Of
course, it is possible that
the family came between the census. Have you
ever tried to find where John
Betty Shaw/Phelps were in 1910 1920. Maybe,
in 1910, they were living
near one of these Offield families.
