Susan, Thank you for replying. Ethard and Annie were my children's great grandparents, their grandson Thomas E Cousins was my first husband.I have been tracing this family for my children. Yes Ethard and Annie were wonderful people.The story you told was very sweet. I don't have any information about why they were in Louisiana. I do know they were in San Saba ,Texas when Ethard was born. I believe that Thomas Green Cousins was buried ib a little town named Dibble,Okla.(not positive about that). It has been a while since I have found any new information on this family. I would love to hear more from you. Please email me direct at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you, and perhaps we can share information.
