Denton Co Orphans

Looking for the parents of three boys orphaned in Denton Co before 1880. They were Robert L., S.N., and C.B. Williams. I do not know what the initials of the last two boys stand for. Robert L. was born 26 May 1868 or 1869 in North Carolina. S.N. was born about 1870 in TN. In 1919 he was working in the oil fields of West Columbia, Brazoria Co, TX. He wrote a letter from their welcoming his nephew (my grandfather) home from France. C.B. was born about 1872 in TN.

In 1880 Robert was a ward of Daniel McLeod, and his brothers were wards of William Ragsdale. All were living in Denton Co.

Robert L. Williams is my great-grandfather and died 10 Nov 1910 in Washita Co, OK. Any info on his brothers or parents would be greatly appreciated. Also would be interested in hearing from the Ragsdale or McLeod families.
