Janet, forgot to tell you that grandmother did own her land in Freestone Co. She would often call it her farm. I know that my own father and mother lived there with her for a time, because she would tell me about her sewing and how my mother would work hard for her there. There used to be an old home on the site, but last time I tried to find it, the homes are all gone and its a bit hard to pinpoint which one she had owned. I was told it is now under lease for cattle grazing, and there are oil and gas wells all over the place, thanks to XTO Energy, et al. Neither my brother or I were named in the will for any of the land. Dad died rather young, so guess they forgot about us when he passed. Never got involved in such things, thinking they would take care of themselves. Now understand that people who receive inheritances, mostly have to play a bit of the political game, a la King Lear.
I don't know if the land grandmother owned was her father William J. Adams land, or if it was that of Nathan A. Cooper next door, or if it consisted for both. That is sort of interesting also.In other words, what happened to Nathan's land and why didn't Hugh Jackson eventually receive some of it.
