In Reply to: VAN ZANDT COUNTY BOOK VOL 1. 1848 -1983... by brigitte russell of 786

Hi,
I'm looking for info on several Van Zandt relatives:
Maternal grandmother Ruby Corrine Carter, b. 12 Dec 1911. Her parents Will and Dora Carter, lived near Myrtle Springs most of their lives, but we don't know where. Know Dora died abt 1962 and Will died sometime before that. Ruby had a brother, Dewey. Can't find them on 1910 and 1920 census, possible they moved into area shortly after that.
Also looking for info on paternal gggrandfather William E. Simmons and Sarah (Sallie) of Wills Point. William b. abt 1857 AL, Sallie b. abt 1864 TN. Lived near Wills Point at least from 1910 on, found them on census near Wills Point & Canton Road. Don't know anything before that. Simmons kids: Roe b. abt 1890 TN, Rosa b. 7 Nov 1891 d. 28 Jan 1933 in Wills Point, Charlie, Fannie b abt 1894 TN married "Holiday", Ezell b abt 1898 TN, Ted b abt 1901 TX, Ronnie (?) b abt 1904 TX, Alton b abt 1907 TX.
Last but not least other paternal gggfather John Thomas Mann, b 25 Jan 1861 Fayette Co. GA, m abt 1885 to Mary Susan Hobbs (b 03 Apr 1866, GA). I have decendancy but no ancestors. We aren't a noteworthy family, doubt if we are listed in your book but could you look anyway?
Thanks for your assistance!
