McGuffin Family Genealogy Forum
In the History of Grimes County there is a pargaraph for application of land that reads:
William McGuffin...This colonist and his wife, Maryanna were natives of Ireland. They came to Texas from the state of Tennessee. No date is given for the application; his patent however, is dated Nov. 12, 1832. At the time he made application, McGuffin was twenty-four, and his wife seventeen years old. The writer finds no mention of a William McGuffin in the Austin Papers. There are however, many items regarding a Hugh McGuffin who lived near Natchitoches, La, and since the name Hugh seems to have been a family name among the decendants of William McGuffin, one would infer that they were relatives.
This is the first time I have heard of the William McGuffin with wife Maryanna. Could this be the same William with wife Susanna?
