JCGS February Meeting

The Johnson County Genealogical Society will meet Thursday, February 11th, 2016, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. at the Cleburne Public Library, 302 W. Henderson.
 
John Stevens, a member of the Board of Trustees for the Covington Cemetery Fund, will be our speaker and he will be presenting a family history titled, "Personal Letters of Philip and Elizabeth Ann White Gathings." It is a history of a Hill County pioneer family based on over 70 original letters and documents from 1846 to 1893. Since Covington is in the northern part of Hill County, there are several ties to Johnson County.
 
All are welcome, and you do not have to be a member to attend the meetings.

Hope to see you next Thursday!
