Surnames: Foshee, Boggess
Separate families migrated from Meigs Co. TN to East/North Central TX shortly after Civil War. A Boggess credited as one of first leading citizens of St.Jo, Montague Co., TX. Trying to confirm travels etc. of George Washington Fooshee, buried in Boggess Cem. there in 1893. It is thought the families might have travelled together. Any Boggess researchers out there? Appreciate any information. Betty

Surnames: Boggess
Hi Betty. I know that my great-great-(great?) grandfather was CAPTAIN Abijah F. Boggess, Co. A, men from Meigs County, Tennessee ( http://www.tngennet.org/civilwar/csainf/csa26.html ) and that my grandfather, Lacy Boggess, and father, Lacy Boggess Jr. (as well as myself) are from Texas. My father was born in Fort Worth, but I'm not sure where my grandfather was born (I can find out). So, I'll pass your posting on to my father to see what he says. Incidentally, I also know that my grandfather, or great grandfather, was known as Irby Boggess.

Sincerely,

Brian Boggess

Surnames: Boggess/Bogus/Avery/Campbell
I am looking for relatives of Easter/Esther Boggess. She married Jessee Avery in Meigs County in 1877. I believe she was related to Isaac Boggess and she had a niece named Callie Boggess who was born in 1874. Her last place of residence was Stonega, Wise, Va. She was living with her son, Will Avery. They were said to be Cherokee Indians. Jessee was from North Carolina. Easter married James A. Campbell and lived in Rhea County, TN after her marriage to Avery ended and some of her children were Frances & Riley Campbell. Her first children were Frank, Charlie, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Avery just to mention a few.
Pleas advise if you know her parents or any relatives.
