Query: Jones and/or Vincent information.  Am looking for anyone that
remembers the Jones of Kopprel, Texas, including Faye, Earl, Moddel,
Sugg's (Virginia), Ruth, Billy, and the names of their mom and dad?  I
know that my grandmother's name on my mom's side was Vincent (sp?) and I
believe her first name was Hattie.  They lived at what is now Lakeside
Village, right on the Bosque River even before the lake was built.  I
have relatives buried in the Kopprel cemetary and some are named Jones
and some are named Strickland and some are named Byars and some are
named Vincent.  I just can't remember my mother (Marjorie Faye Jones
Lee's) mother or father's first names.  She was raised in Kopprel and
was born 3/10/1923.  Any help would be appreciated.
