Bio and Links
I am a descendent of early Texans, Joseph and Eva Barnett Lancaster,Aaron Prescott and Arzula Feazle, and Thomas Smith Norvell and Rachel Jones Gilbert Norvell . Currently my husband practices law in Brady and San Antonio, Texas. I am a retired educator. I hold a BBA from UT Austin and an MA from Trinity University in San Antonio where we also have a home and have lived since 1968. My husband descends from early Texans also, Isaacks, Mitchells,Olivers, Goffs, Walkers, Owens,Willis. I have been researching all of mine and his families for 3 years. My grandfather, Hobart Huson, had done much research and history writing before me. I am a member of the DRT and much committed to recording and preserving Texas history. I found this site through a Web pg of newly discovered Isaack cousins. I really enjoy and benefit from this site.

Those were the children and census record of Benjamin J. Willis.
There's a link to my online family tree on my member page.
Hope I've not confused anyone!

Hightower/Basin Springs Cem, Texas
We have talked before and I believe it was about the Murray's Hightowers and connections at Basin Springs Cemetery. I was there for the clean up last year and was just working on putting in some addional information. I see you are a DRT. I am a DAR through the Murray line connected to BAsin Springs Cemetery and Whitesborough Area.
Would love to communicate with you again.

Elizabeth Ann Willis Faver
Hi Mary Ann,

I have met Linda that holds the memorial for William "Billy" Faver. Have you asked her to link Elizabeth to Billy? If she will link them, then whoever has the memorial for her can add her parents that I linked to her sister, Caroline.

I don't hold her memorial, so I can't do it, but I have all of the children in my database. I have asked for links and/or to let the holders of the other children who did not know of/or list Caroline Pickett Willis Abbott Bennett, that she was the sister, but nothing happened so far.

Billy married Mary Ann Oliver whose married name should be Weems and then Faver after that, but no change on adding in Weems for my line yet. So, I can't link more of them until this gets updated.

Maybe my e-mails or edits failed? Maybe they will update it if you ask again?

Also, would you happen to know who William John Willis' parents are? I have Ann Johnston's but not seem/found a memorial for them yet, either.

RE: Hamon Sullivan Price
I also do not know where Hamon is buried. I am descended from his 1st wife Susan Emeline Lovie Cromeans and do not know where she's buried either. I've already e-mailed you a picture of William Glaspy Price. I did that several days ago. I sent it to Let me know if you didn't get the picture. I can send it again. My e-mail is I look forward to getting the invitation to your tree on Thank you so much.

RE: Hamon Sullivan Price
I do not know anything about Louise Price Usery so I can't help you with her. I have no pictures of Hamon, but I do have one of his son William who I'm descended from. I will send it in a separate e-mail. I don't subscribe to so I can't access your family tree. If you could just let me know what the 2nd wife's name was, I would appreciate it. Also, I would like to know how you found out that Hamon was elected commissioner after coming to TX. Was that also in the files that you mentioned?

Hamon Sullivan Price
I am descended from Hamon thru his son William Glaspy Price, brother of Andrew Bailey Price. I had not heard that Hamon had been elected commissioner after coming to TX nor had I heard about the unscrupulous 2nd wife. However, I don't know much about Hamon. Can you give me any info on him? I would appreciate anything you have including anything more about the situation with the 2nd wife. Do you know who she was? Are there any documents of any kind showing him being elected commissioner?

Thank you,
Terrie Russell
