BOWLES, DICKSON, ROBERTS & STOUTSENBERGER: I'm looking for any information on my ancestors who lived in the Fort Davis area about 1880- 1900. My gggrandparents were named Morgan Price and Nancy ROBERTS, who were from Illinois. They raised Angoras on a ranch there, where my great uncle, Henry DICKSON, worked as a ranch hand. The ROBERTS family had at least three children: Sam (who was busted for stealing cattle), Frank, and my gggrandfather, George Washington ROBERTS. About 1888, Geo. Wash. married Frances Adelina STOUTSENBERGER (nee BOWLES), and they had nine children. Sam married Emma BRAGG in Presidio Co. in 1881. In about 1895 my ggrandparents moved to the Guadalupe Mountains. Happy to share what I have on these families. Write to me at my e-mail address or at 2220 Marshall Way, Sacramento, CA 95818-3546. Join the BOWLES researchers list---ask me how!

Looking for information on H. M. Bandy and parents. H. M. Bandy, as you know, came to Lubbock with Judge W. D. Crump (Judge Crump has a page at the WPA Life Histories Collection, http://lcweb2.loc.gov/ammem/wpaquery.html at the Library of Congress - search for 'bandy', probably works for 'crump' as well). I have a Bandy Family History page at http://www.thuntek.net/~mccrory/bandy/ my web page if anyone needs the info that I have. Regards,

Looking to share valuable information with other descendants of the following West Texas area residents. This couple met in West Texas, married and lived a short while in Chihuahua, Mexico, and finally made their home in Van Horn, TX (having at least seven children total). Santiago ABREO or ABREU (b~1880) and Anita Skaggs WHITE or BLANCO (b~1890). Don't hesitate to contact me, cousin. Even if you don't see the exact first name above, it's genuinely possible that I have something you need and you have something I need. Good luck with your research.

I'm trying to locate information on William E. KYLER and wife Charlotte. I know they lived and owned property in Presidio in 1930. I also know that William was living in 1945, and that his brother's obit lists him as a survivor in 1951.
