Hi, Reba:

I'm not sure of what race your great grandmother was. Could she be this person?

1900 Grimes County, Texas, Census, enumeration district 11, sheet 4b.

Maline (or Malisse - the name is very hard to read) - African American girl, born March 1892), daughter of Mage and Nancy Horton. They had several children, including Martha, Belle, Ebbie, Edgar, Kid, Ada, and Dack (or Dock?), as well as the girl I listed first.

This may be to be the same person as is listed in the 1910 Ellis County, Texas, census, enumeration district 125, sheet 4b:

Melissa Horton, a "mulatto" girl aged about 17 years old, stepdaughter in the household of Richard H. and Nancy McGown - both of the parents had been married before.

Let me know if this is not the correct person - you can email me directly at:

Good luck with your research,
