    Article on T W Quaid family, Rusk County, Texas

    "Tax records for 1846 show that T W (Thomas Walter) Quaid was a  resident of New Salem in Rusk County. ... T W and his wife Emily Moore came from Brownsville, Mississippi, Lafayette County.  Upon arriving in Texas, they had four children with them:  Benjamin Walter, Elihu (Eli Hugh), William Riley and Simpson.
    "[The author, Glen Quaid's] line derives from Elihu.  He married Martha J Barron on July 19, 1866.  After Martha died, he married Nancy Fletcher on July 8,1874.  Nancy was born in Franklin Co, Illinois, in 1851.  She died Dec 11, 1927.  Elihu died October 9, 1907, in Johnson [Johnston] County, Oklahoma.

    "The line descends from Elihu, to John Savanna, Edgar Garland, Jack Quaid and myself. ...

    "The movie actors, Randy and Dennis Quaid, are descended from Elihu's brother, Benjamin Walter.  The line runs:  Benjamin Walter, John Thomas, William Jesse, and their father William Rudy."
