I have my great-great grandparents listed as Owen Lorin McAlister and Elizabeth Spence. Owen was born in Tennessee and died in Rusk County, Tx; Elizabeth was born in Kentucky and died in Austin Tx. One of their daughters was Delilah McAlister born in Rusk Co in 1861. She married Newton Canada Brummett in 1879. Their daughter, Lillie Laredo, married Alva Henry Johnson; their son,James Newton Johnson was my father. He died in 1972. I have pictures of all of these wonderful people.
