There were 2 main Folmar families that came to Wood. Co. Tx from Pike Co. Ala. Their all related but names spelled differently. Jacob Leonard Folmar moved out as well as his uncle Abraham Franklin Folmer. Interesting story: JL Folmar's father, Jacob Folmer, was an alcoholic who was abusive to his wife.One day his wife ran to Abraham's house and hid in the fields. Jacob thought that she was in Abraham's house and was coming in and of course Abraham told him she wasn't in the house but Jacob came forward anyway, so Abraham shot his own brother in self defense. thought this is a bit of Folmar family history I would share with you. Cathy

PS I don't know how many of Abraham's children came out to Tx. I would have to check that out for you.
