Eastland County, Texas Photo Album
Early Photos From Cisco, TX
contributed and annotated by Laura Lindsey
This photo of Cisco (front and back
shown) belonged to [my great grandfather] James Monroe Lindsey.
"He ran a store in Cisco, and I was told it burned down. I
believe my Aunt told me it had a red star on the side of it, and she
said it was in that photo; but [the photo] is so old it is hard to see
a lot [of it clearly]"
[This couple are] "my grandparents,
Henry Thomas and Minnie Green (Gaines) Lindsey. My grandmother
went to school in Cottonwood and later taught school there also.
My grandfather came from Alabama to Oklahoma to Cisco. They
met and married in Oklahoma. I don't have any pics of my
great grandfather...or his second wife, Ellen P. Daniels. I know
she and her family lived there many years also. She and my great
grandfather are buried in Cisco Cemetery in the Daniels Plot along side
her parents and several other family members. I really don't know
anything else about the Daniels family, nor do I know who my great
grandmother was, or even where she came from, or what may have happened
to her. I know the 4 oldest children, including my
grandfather Henry Thomas. were all born before he married Ellen
Daniels, and the 5 younger children were his and Ellen's. Ellen
must have gone by "Lynn" because on her Death records they have her
listed as Lynn, but the birth and death dates are the same.
Henry Thomas Lindsey
"He lived in Cisco - Cottonwood
for many years. His Father was James Monroe Lindsey. He lived in
Cisco around 50 years--maybe longer--and raised his children there"
"The three little girls are my
aunts--Henry and Minnie Lindsey's daughters--Irene, Eva, and Nina
Lindsey, taken about 1915."
