Since posting I have read letter in packet of information concerning James A. Friar.His father's name is shown to be Tom Friar who married Matilda Pierce.There is mention of Rosa Friar who married Bradley Hale in Medina Co., Tx. 1905, then married Rude Kuykendall where she died Mar. 21, 1913.Also mentioned is murder of Joe Friar Nov. 11, 1913 by O.L. "Boc" Freeman. If this is of help to identify line of family please contact me.Supposedly Matilda Pierce was full Cherokee.
