Savage & Ott families-mid to late 1800's

  of 1676

I am researching my great grandparent's history as it relates to Grayson Co. Her name is Susan or Susanna Savage, born in Grayson Co. abt 1848, daughter of Luke W. Savage and Mary "Polly" ____. On Dec. 19, 1867 she married James A. Ott of Louisiana (probably in Grayson Co.). They later gave birth to my grandmother, Dora Lydia Ott in 1882, and possibly some siblings, but I have no firm details on any others. Dora later married my grandfather, Mack Oliver Brown of MO in 1900 (loc. unknown, but likely Grayson Co.), but I have no lineage on him. Is there anyone out there in Grayson Co. who might know any little bit of info on these close-but yet far away relatives of mine? I was told they lived in Bells and at some point Sherman, TX. Are there any cemeteries around that I should investigate- particularly for the Savage line, as there were many of them who came to Grayson Co. in the mid 1800's? Also, James A. Ott is where I'm stuck on that side. A parent's name would really help.
Dora and Mack went to Southern Oregon around 1915 or so, and lived there until their respective deaths in 1928 and 1932. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
