The Echols family has resided in America for many generations dating back to the original immigrant, John Echols who arrived in 1650 from England. He married his wife Mary Cave in Virginia. Branches of this family lived in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina and later descendants migrated to Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama by 1820. During the late 1840’s, many Echols families came to Texas taking advantage of the inexpensive land and new opportunities the state offered.
