Gideon and James Leonard (G.G. and J.L.)Ainsworth were orphaned brothers who came to the Sterling County, Texas area around the turn of the century with their uncle, R.W. Foster and his brother, W.L. Foster. James was my great grandfather.
Their father was Arch Ainsworth, reportedly from Alabama. Their mother was R.W. Foster's sister.
Arch had two brothers who married two sisters of M.Z. House, another "big name" in the Sterling County area who arrived there about the same time as the Foster brothers. I have information on the Houses, but none whatsoever on what happened to Arch's two brothers after they married the two House sisters.
Since James and Gid were orphaned, it'd be interesting to know how, when and where their parents died, also. James and Gid and most of their descendants are in Foster Cemetery, just outside of Sterling City. Please post here or contact me if you think you might know anything.
