Re: DARWINS OF TEXAS
My great grandmother was Milina Izora Darwin.
Her grave site is in Rogers, TX.But headstone only says Aunt Doak.I have some info on these people, but need to get the papers out.Do you have death certificates of any of these people?In the courthouses in Milam (which was pre-Bell)County, Bell County, etc., I couldn't find things I was looking for.I had newspaper clipping of Aunt Doak's death, but someone stole purse in 1983, and I couldn't find copy in microfiche in Temple Library.That was 8 years ago, and maybe I know how to look for it now.Anyway, if you do have anything, please let's get together on this.
Are you in the Temple I.S.D., or which one?
My grandmother was Sallie (Sallye) Loraine (Lorene) Underwood Hanes Priddy (1 year) Hieronymus.Sister to Wm Banks Underwood (Bud) and Rit Underwood, which I think was nickname, but not sure.Also, are you aware that Milina was married to a Henderson before Underwood, who was supposedly Underwood's 1/2 brother?Some of this was written down by my sister, related by my grandmother, but she didn't talk much about it, and we didn't ask much at that time.I don't know Milina's maiden name for sure, but believe it was Darwin.Do not know her father's given name.
So glad Lisa relayed you to me.I am in Brenham, TX, 58 years old.Will tell you more if you want.
