Thanks Patti, you know when I last looked at your book at the library, I was only interested in N J Chance,I will have to give it another look when I go back. I have a kissin cousin that is a decendent from J C Chance, I just wonder if anyone has a history of Roff's Co. I have been going through all the rosters that I find on line, hoping to find my elusive Johnson's. My ggrandfather, Columbus George's father and uncles were all of age to be in the Civil war, and thought if I could find them I would be able to find out where in Texas they were from. I know Columbus was born in Tx and married in Lamar Co Tx.
