After reading your posting from 2001,I believe I am a cousin of your husband's family.
My grandmother was Martha Isabel Lowe, Willie Sam Lowe's sister.
Mattie Belle, as she was called, lived until she was 104 and passed 1988 in Las Vegas, Nevada.I remember her once a year travels across the country to visit family and one of them was her brother who lived in Texas. This brother must be Willie.
It was to my great delight to come across your posting because it was the first confirmation of Mattie Belle's siblings I have found in my very new research of my family for my grandchildren. While it is a lot of fun solving this mystery of our roots I have been frustrated at myself for not paying more attention when my grandmother was alive.
Thank you so much for your posting it gave me hope to find out the rest of the story. Any other info you may have regarding my mother's family I would dearly love read.I realize years have past since your last posting and I pray this finds you well.If you would like info on the Mattie Belle line let me know.
