Any Erath County Cage descendants know about this connection- and could
it be the same Cage who was a sometimes investor with Crow and Trammell
of San Angelo and Stephenville? I think the marriage was in Georgia-
either Atlanta or farther north, but several families owned land in both
states and moved to the best as rain and Indian problems arose. From
Blount County, Tennessee to Hiawasse Ga to Toccoa and into the Atlanta

I am finally getting back to you. My name is Sondra Anice Barnes and my
grandfather was James Rutherford Wyly (married to Minnie Alpha Cage) and
his father was Capt. Benjamin Franklin Wyly who was a son of Oliver
Cromwell Wyly, then was Sarah Clark, then Elizabeth Sevier, then John
I have been unable to find a record of my grandfather as being a son of
Capt. Benjamin Franklin Wyly although I have always been told that he is.
One of these days I will go ahead and get my grandfather's death
certificate...he died Feb. 1980, in Alameda, CA. Have been stalling
because it now costs so much to get a death certificate in California.
Anyway, my grandfather, James Rutherford Wyly (married to Minnie Alpha
Cage) had 4 children:
1. James Rutherford Wyly
2. Glen Rutherford Wyly
3. George Edmund Wyly
4. Florence Aylene Wyly (my mother)
I did run into someone who said they had a record of this but didn't
remember where. I don't belong to any of the genealogy website groups so
am not able to do a lot of searches.
Let me know if you know anything. I am so sorry to take so long in
getting back to you....I want to spend more time on this so badly!
