HELLO:I AM RESEARCHING FOR DRAPER FAMILYS THAT WOULD HAVE LIVED IN WILSON COUNTY TEXAS IN THE 1920,S CENSUS, ONE DRAPER IS A JOHN J. DRAPER WHO WAS BORN IN 1848 IN PONTOTOC COUNTY MISSISSIPPI, HE FIRST HAD A LARGE RANCH IN WINKLER COUNTY, SOLD IT A COUPLE BROTHERS BY THE NAME OF COWDEN,S HE LATER PURCHASED A RANCH IN WILSON COUNTY, HE WAS KNOWN FOR HIS CATTLE RANCHING AND FARMING, I AM NOT SURE THE YEAR HE DIED, MAYBE 1939, HE HAD AT LEAST THREE CHILDREN ACCORDING TO SOME FAMILY MEMBERS, A CENSUS WILL HELP ME CONSIDERABLE, ANY HELP IN MY DRAPER FAMILY GENEALOGY WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. SINCERELY JIMMIE DRAPER
