Godsey Family 

Samuel W. Godsey and Laura Prudence Johnson Godsey with their family around 1907 in Van Zandt County, Texas..  My grandmother, Arrissa Octavie Godsey(1906-1949) she died 2 years before I was born, is on Laura's lap.  Around the picture is Ola Godsey (1889-abt 1922, she died shortly after childbirth) with her husband Harrison Z. Price and he is holding their first child (whose name I don't have, he died shortly after this picture was taken), next is Arvie Godsey (1890 -), next to Samuel is Epsie Godsey (1900-1930) she died young and her parents raised some of her children, on the other side of Samuel is Earnest Godsey (1896-1961), in front of him is Carrie Godsey (1893-1969).  That is it.  They were not famous or rich, but lived honest lives and all their days in Texas.

Laura Johnson's grandfather Hampton Hansford Hanks(1807-1894) fought in the Texas War with Mexico for the independence of Texas.  He is listed in the same company as Sam Houston.
