John Whitley

I am trying to locate any information about my great grandfather, John Whitley. I am not sure of his birth date, but believe it may be 1859. He was married to Emily Lona Richardson. She died giving birth to her second child, and my grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Whitley. My great grandfather gave her to his in-laws the Richardson's to raise. He took his 4 year old daughter Mollie to his sister to raise. I do not know if he stayed with them, but suspect that he did at least for a time. My grandmother was born in Madisonville, Texas, and was raised in a small community out in the country called Holly Grove. Some of the relatives of the Richardson's still live in that area, and in the Livingston area. My grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Whitley was born March 21, 1884. Her sister Mollie was probably born in 1880. The Family Tree Maker has the Richardson family lineage, and they have Emily Lona Richardson listed as Emilia Lonia, and John Whitley listed as John Whilley. They forgot to dot the t. I will appreciate hearing from anyone with more information about John Whitley.
