Very new to ancestry.com Beginning to document my mother's side of the family. My grandmother, Mae McCarthy (nee: Smith) told me we were related to the Vice President John Nance Garner. My grandmother was from Texas. Her mother, Mary Garner married Ulysees Smith. Mary Garner was supposedly the connection. A cousin of John Nance Garner?

Where would be a good place to begin my tracking. I have pictures of Mary Garner, and her husband. They had daughters named Mae (my grandmother) Anna Belle and Lulu.

They lived in Texas and then moved to Yuma Arizona I believe. Any place to start looking for the connection?

John - Wow - I'm impressed. Someone actually NAMED John Nance!! Ok check this out, www.familytreemaker.com/users/p/r/e/Karen--Preston/GENE4-000... There are several Mary Garners. But, there is one that might be yours. Mary E. Garner who was married to a James Smith. Her father was Joel Stephen Garner and he was indeed a decendant of Obediah B Garner. I'll try to make this simple. There were 3 John Nance Garners in the chain of Cactus Jack. The first was the son of Obediah who married three Nance girls in succession. John Sr. then married and had John Jr. and then John Jr.'s son is the one - Cactus Jack. Check out the web site and see if you can follow the trail to your folks. Also, if I can help in any way, I actually live in Austin, Texas and am able to run to the Bureau of Vital statistics if you need any documents. Oh, and don't hesitate to contact me directly at pdboothe@altavista.com
Happy Hunting!!!

Sounds like you have a lot of info already. I do think I can help, but my geneology stuff is elsewhere. (My car and it's pouring rain here in Texas!) My direct e-mail address is pdboothe@altavista.com. Please send me all the names and info directly to that address. Then I'll be able to look at my book and your info on the screen at the same time. John Nance "Cactus Jack" Garner was from Uvalde, Texas. I have his family tree info and the Nance has a interesting history. I share with you. ANYWAY, send me a note and we'll see what we can find.
Happy Huntin' from Austin
