JCGS September Meeting

The Johnson County Genealogical Society will meet Thursday, September 10th, 2015, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. at the Cleburne Public Library, 302 W. Henderson.

Our presenter for the night will be Olyve Hallmark Abbott speaking about her seventh book, Come Sundown: The Life and Letters of a Frontier Woman. The book is based on the correspondence of her great-grandmother, Permelia Nickell Hawkins, who came with her family to Somervell County, Texas (George's Creek) from NE Kentucky in 1880. She saved her letters until her death in 1899. Afterward, her four daughters saved family letters that eventually came to Olyve.  

All are welcome; you do not have to be a member to come to the meetings.
