I just purchased a county land map of Johnson County from an antique shop in the hill country.It is from 1888.It shows all the owners of land in Johnson County and their plots of land.
My greatgreatgrandfather Hiram Henry Wilbanks is listed along with his kin Alonzo Gardner Wilbanks and Allen Mansil Wilbanks. They are all living near one another in the Goatneck area of the county.
Big Mystery....Along with the above, the map lists R.D. Wilbanks just to the west next to Alonzo Gardner.I have no relatives listed with those initials living in Johnson County at the time.None of the census extracts have an R.D. listed as well.Who could he (or she) be???
Anyone who thinks they have an answer, please send me an email.I will try to scan this part of the map in and post it fore everyone to see.If you are curious drop me a line and I will email it to you.
