Thank you for the information on Annie Wade Polk. She was my mother-in-law and I am unable to find her mother and father after the 1880 census. Annie and her brother Houston were raised by their maternal grandmother Emily Norman Chance in Milam County. In the 1880 census Winston and Mary Jane were living with Annie Hawkins who probably owned the farm that they were living on in Ellis county. I understand that the Hawkins family was well known and that they owned a lot of property in Ellis County. I have searched the death records in Ellis and Milam counties and did not find either Winston or Mary Jane listed. I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have that I could pursue.

Thanks again for your help.

Mary Polk
