Accounts of some of Timothy Goekes's Ancestors

Tuesday 22 December 2015 at 6:50 pm

This article by Timothy Goeke first appeared in Stirpes, Texas State Genealogical Society, Volume 34, Number 1, March 1994, Frances Condra Pryor, editor, Journal/Magazine/ Newsletter, March 1994. It can be accessed digitally at the Portal to Texas History, University of North Texas. (http://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth39868/:accessed December 10, 2015), University of North Texas Libraries, The Portal to Texas History, http://texashistory.unt.edu; crediting Texas State Genealogical Society, Tyler, Texas.

What follows is a portion of that account, slightly edited by Weldon Mersiovsky, to give you an example of fine and concise genealogical writing that would be of interest to a wide range of family and social historians. According to his father, David Goeke, Timothy did use some of his research, he also did much of his own research and he absolutely wrote the paper on his own.

Following the article is Timothy's Ahnentafel (Table of Ancestors).
