Classification: Query
Surnames: Thacker, Stewart, Cawthon, King
I too have ancestors who migrated to east Texas from Alabama and northern Florida during the 1840s - 1870s. During previous generations they lived in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. Their surnames were Thacker, Stewart, Cawthon and King. I plan to go to Texas next spring and do some local research. I'd like to know how they got there. Were there any well-known southern pioneer trails, including water routes?
