Looking for Bowers-Gilliland connection

I would like to locate the former Donna Bowers who attended high school with me in Stonewall in the 1960's. I believe her mother is related to my mother, the former Mary Nell Morris. I remember my mother telling me that the Bowers family has done research on our ancestors. I would like to know more.

Mary Nell married Van Williams in 1951 and had three children:
Linda Carol, b 11-21-52, Waco, Texas
James Aulton b. 10-31-55, Waco, Texas
John Morris b. 8-1-68, Waco, Texas.

Van and Mary Nell divorced in 1975 and Mary Nell married Eddie Moore in 1976 in Oklahoma. Mary Nell died Dec. 26, 1998 in Ada and is buried in Atoka.

Mary Nell was the daughter of Nina Myrtle Hoyl and William Francis Morris, and Nina Myrtle was the daughter of Mary Catherine and HC Hoyle, both buried in the Frisco cemetery.

There is also a record of W. F. Hoyl b 12-22-1838 , d. 12-11-27 and his wife Margaret b. 10-7-1839, d. 10-19-23. They are buried in the Frisco cemetery and I wonder if they
might be HC's parents. Any information about this family would be most helpful.
