How about the Black books? (Not racial)- Ga. Black Book had a descendant
of Col. Ben Cleveland in it as a severe alcoholic who abused his wife
and children. He was warned the first time he beat her by neighbors
without masks that if it happened again they would see hiom in court.
and they did. One of his sons was raised by james Rutherford Wyly and
second wife Francis Wallace. His first wife was Sarah hawkins Clark (
Sevier ) Wyly. As you probably know , Sarah's parents were Maj. William
Clark and Eli=zabeth Sevier. Elizabeth was 7 when her mom died,and she
went back to Knoxville and lived in her grandad Sevier's home when he
was first Tennessee Governor and was educated partially in home
schooling when G. Grandad X8 Col. Sevier hired Presbyterian and Baptist
ministers to educate his children. so, Wylys came to Erath County, Texas
reading Latin Vulgate Bibles , esp. Uncle Bill in Selden. Also several
other Erath County families in Central Texas from that area- Sevier-
Hatchettt- Stone- Carey- Cleveland- kay-Rampley-Hipp-Underwood-
Wyly-Clark- King and many others with Tennessee and Ga. kin.
You can probably find the one in Ga. Black Book who was cured of
Alcoholism or recoverred from Moonshine damage and was released and
became a Responsible and respected Citizen of Souith Carolina, between
Traveller's Rest Inn, Toccoa and Traveller's Rest Town, S.C.
A few years ago some of the S.C. Irish Travellers (Not Gypsies) came
through Erath County, Texas and poured burnt motor oil on dad's roof for
a sealer, which it was not. When dad realized he was a con artist's
victim he went to the Sheriff and wanted to file charges. The Sheriff
told him to get in line with other victims. By then they were back in the
$200,000.00 homes in South Carolina, as was shown on either 60 Minutes or
20-20 on TV.

TODAY 40 % OF ALL RESIDENT TEXANS LIVE WITHIN 15 MILES OF i-35. AVOID
THE TRAFFIC BY TAKING 281 FROM CANADA TO STEPHENVILLE TO LAMPASSAS AND
SAN ANTONIO- THE OLD NATIONAL TRUNK ROUTE it's more scenic and relaxing
and sometimes faster.
