Levi David Balkum and Tennie Cothran Balkum Family of Texas
Levi David Balkum is the family Patriarch. He was a family leader. Levi David
some times called L.D. Balkum migrated from Alabama to Texas as a young man.
After the untimely death of their Mother, Angie Boyd Balkum, Levi David Balkum
brought his siblings to Texas. They came with a group of relatives that lived in
their same area of Alabama. The people came from Northern Alabama an Launderdale
County, Alabama to join other relatives that had already made their way to
Texas. The siblings that came with Levi David were his older sister Emily Mae
Balkum about age 23; and younger brothers Robert Balkum age 13 and Mack Hubert
age 10. After arriving in Texas Levi David married Tennie Cothran on 12/23/1883,
in Freestone County, Texas. This family are the founders of the present day
Balkum family line in Texas.

line. Descendants of Levi David Balkum and his wife Tennessee (Tennie) Bell
Cothran Balkum trace ancestors from Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee,
Alabama, to Texas. This family line fought with the Confederate States Army at
the time of the Civil War.

Baukman, or Balkan, or Balkener, or Balkham, or Baldwin, or Baldin, or Balcombe.
