My great-aunt MARY ELIZABETH BARKER "LIZZIE" married a ZIPP. Lizzie was born 25 Aug 1882 near Abilene, TX - probably Iatan or Merkel.
When her father, Levi Byrd Barker, died in 1935, she and her husband, Mr. Zipp, were living in Weatherford, Parker Co, TX. I do not know if she died in Callahan Co, TX or elsewhere - but she and my grandfather were very close when they were young (their mother died when they were small)and I would love to know her husband's name & any children they had. Thanks very, very much for offering your information.
