Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.
If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us! If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways. Get the details on our Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]
We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

King County Texas
Created from Fannin County in 1876 and organized in 1891. Named for William King. Area of 928 square miles. Situated in Northwest Texas. The greater part of the surface is rolling prairie and the soil a rich sandy loam. The county has several streams. Surface water is impregnated with gypsum, but good water can be had at a depth of about 60 feet. Most of the county is given over to stock raising, but within recent years, farming has become one of the occupations. Guthrie, the county seat, is reached by stage line from Benjamin.
