I passed along the corrections you folks have given me to George Parker's branch and they appreciated the help! The most we can figure is that George and Henry both named some of their sons the very same names so we figure that the reason George was there was his brother's company on cattle drives from Tx. to Kansas. (Henry's tradition is that he left his wife, Nancy, about 1870 and is not heard from for three years.) So thanks to everyone. Has anyone any knowledge of records of cattle drives out of Milam and Hood counties Tx.? Thanks.
