My grandmother, Lula Mary Winzer, according to her death certificate, was born in Freestone Co. March 5, 1977. Her father, Elijah Winzer, and mother, Mary Runnels Winzer, were both dead by the 1880 census when she and her brother had been taken to live with older married half-brothers and half-sisters in Falls Co. If anyone knows anything about any Winzers or Runnels, I would appreciate their reply to my query.
Thank you. Mar Ches
