Hi, I would be happy to exchange information with you. Some info I have came off the net, but my mother and her cousin John have given me some interesting stories. I live south of Austin near the town of Lockhart and have lived in the area all my life. I saw from your posting that you mentioned John Ellis Preece, are you descended from him? John has been somewhat of a mystery for me. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
