I am in search of information on my uncle and aunt, Walter & Berta EVANS who resided in Cisco during the early 1900's. They had two or three children. The only one I can remember is a daughter named Betty Lou. She would be about seventy at this time.

About 1940 uncle Walter had a house moving company in Cisco. I have lost track of him and his entire family. If you, or one of your people could help me to get a line on them it would be greatly
appreciated. I can be reached by email at: Thanks in advance for your assistance. Billy Strange

I am searching for descendants of Maggie Miller Warren Sawyer. I know she had a daughter Nora Warren about 1909. When Maggie Sawyer died in Eastland in 1964, she had nine grandchildren. Nora had already died but would be the mother of the nine grandchildren. I do not know who Nora married but it is possible that some of her children still live around Eastland. Any information will be appreciated.
