My g-grandmother was Ida Blanche Hancock, who married Charles Everett Wells (in Angleton?). Ida's father was Rufus Coffee Hancock, who married Adeline Hillin. Rufus was a son of Dawson (Dosen) Hancock, whose family moved to the Mount Enterprise/Pine Hill area from Tennessee in the late 1850s or thereabouts. Rufus Hancock was a merchant in Angleton in the 1890s, serving as postmaster and building the Hancock House hotel (no longer existing). Lee Wells, Charles Wells' father, owned a lumber business in Angleton in the 1890s. If you'd like more of the Hancock names, I can get those for you, but the ones I've mentioned here are where I've been concentrating my attention.
