Re: John & Noah Wiswell not killed by Indians!
Hello Jo Ann, long time no hear.
I have moved from Cisco to Abilene, Tx., slightly closer to civilization. I have a few comments:
1. John Wiswell Jr., son of John Rice Wiswell, did not remain in Denton Texas. He was on the wagon train led by his son-in-law, Nathaniel Hazelton. John Wiswell Jr. and Miriam Roberson had their first seven children in Merced California. Children William Ewell and Lula Lenora (my grandmother) were born in Bosque Co. TX. The last child, Rufus Green was born in Arkansas. ( I believe on a visit)
D.F. Wiswell was probably Daniel F. Wiswell s/o Amasa Jr. s/o Amasa Sr. s/o Noah b.11/25/1727, s/o Ebenezer,s/o Oliver, s/o Enoch, s/o Thomas, s/o Robert Jr., s/o Robert, s/o Thomas, s/o Richard
Also Daniel F. had a son named Lee, and one named Leander. This probably is not the Leonidas you are speaking of.
One other thing, John Rice Wiswell had a half brother named Moses. I have heard the name Leonidas, so I will look in another file and see what I have if anything.
