Elaine, Thank you. We need info on Cap. The Prather, Wilkerson, Jones, Sanders families were in Weed in the 1880's. Most migrated to Arizona. These families have intertwined over the generations. One of Cap's wives, Margaret Sanders sister Mary Jane Sanders m James Watts, Son Edgar Watts m Dizzy Jernigan, son George Watts m Charlotte Jones (do not know if this is the same Jones line as ours yet), daughter Patricia Watts m ?? Prather. We also have a Maybelle Wilkerson m Samuel Prather. (believed to be Cap's daughter) Samuel left Maybelle and family and moved to Alaska changing his name to Browning- his mothers maiden name. All families lived in Weed at the same time. Any info concerning Cap is greatly appreciated. Thank you
