I've recently discovered that Percy W. Leland was actually my gg-uncle, and his brother, Dudley C., was my great-grandfather. Thanks to the help of a friend in Gilmer, TX, I now have photos of the family headstones in the old Gilmer Cemetery. I still have questions about Dudley C. (probably Clarence) - relatives have stated that he was murdered in 1915 (robbed, killed, and left on the railroad tracks). If there are any family ties in the area who might know of the story (Barnwell, Hardy, McClelland, McGaughey, others), I'd appreciate any information.

Thanks-Leland Sonnier
