Would like more information on the family of
Isabella Jane REED BLANSETT and her daughter Elizabeth Rose BLANCETT REED HARRIS. Elizabeth Rose was born April 27, 1880 in GlenRose, Somervell, Texas. Later the same year, her mother is a widow living with her sister in neighboring Erath Couny, Tx.
Isabella Jane REED BLANSETT and her sister Sarah V REED HORN DOWNS, found on the 1880 Erath County, Tx Census as follows:

The funeral record of Elizabeth Rose BLANSETT REED (1880 Glen Rose, Somervell, Texas-1948 Ardmore, Carter, Ok) shows her parents as Isabella Jane REED and Jim Blansett. Some records have the spelling as Blansit. Elizabeth Rose BLANSETT married 1)John Henry REED (1876TX-1906 Ardmore, Ok)
Children: Leona Evelyn REED COX, Elvia REED WALLS
2)James Lewis HARRIS.
Have been unable to find any of the above on the 1900 census. Have not located the DOWNS/HORNS after 1880.
Any help on this family is much appreciated.
