Sharon, I just received this today. Will try to help ASAP. We have mutual ancestors – Sellers family.
My mother was a Sellers before she married my dad, Leonard Hays. I was not raised by her after he died in 1941, too many kids, pre-war days. My cousin and wife took me to raise. My name is Dorothy Hays Harbin, and I believe, we are distant cousins. We have several cousins in common.
Also, your Smithwick family was neighbors to my husband’s family (Harbin) in 1920, Wood Co. Weird, huh?
Do you work? I will try to call you on Thursday, sometime. Where is Highland, TX. around Houston? I am still recovering from wrist and hand surgery, got to get off the computer and exercise it. TTYL Dorothy
P.S. Deason, you can list it in the newsletter, maybe someone else, can help with the Smithwick family.
