Hi Terry, nice seeing you here.I ran across a letter written to C. Reid Dowland on May 21, 1961, Marietta, Texas.The reply was from Edith Dial I believe whose father was William Brown Capps, grandson of William R. and Lucy Fly Capps.
As you know, it has been said that the name "Reed" or "Reid" was the last name of Lucy's mother.
The letter tells him about Stafford Store, etc.He is called cousin (far removed).She sends him to Algie Capps for help.
So, from C. Reid Dowland we have another link.Did you send this info to me?
She also seaks of a great grandmother named Mary Ann Fox who died in 1915.She remembered seeing this man at Uncle Jim Holt's snd sldo remembers Uncle Bill and Aunt Bob?? Reid.Speaks of Willie Holt being killed.She said Her mother was Viloa Parson and had one sister named Nan Butler who was the mother o George and Will Buttler. George had a daughter named daughter, Mrs. Hallie smith.This sister,Nan,married Will Stafford.
I have another letter written by a different person that says pretty much the samr thing.I thought this would be interesting to you and possibly part of your Dowland book.
