Gary,Thanks for your reply.I'm not sure when the Gaither family that I'm interested in arrived in Texas. I also do not know where they were from.
In 1911, in West,TX, my ancestor died.The obit mentioned his daughter, Mrs. W.A. Gaither of Waxahatchie, TX.Since he had ten children and many daughters, I'm not sure which daughter married a W.A. Gaither.
My ancestor was also from Tennessee, Marshall County.I know he was in Waxahatchie by 1884 as one of his children was born there in that year.The previous children were all born in TN.
Do you have anyone in your Gaither family that might have the intials W.A.?
