I have gained much info on the family of John B. Earle, b. Sept. 1879 in TN, possibly McMinnville area; d. March 1973 at Athens, Henderson Co., TX. John B. Earle's photo was taken by an AP photographer in 1970's, when John made the trek from Texas to TN (McMinnville or Murfreesboro) to visit relatives. He had taken the bus; had been beaten and robbed of his money. The photo showed him lying on some steps of a building.
His mother Dora Cothern (Cathern) was the third wife of his father, Alexander Earls(es). Also looking for Scott cousins - Sophia (Sohpy) Scott was the fourth wife of John B.'s father.
Have met and visited with Scott cousins in the Reagor Springs, TX, many years ago.
