What do you know about the Sawyers family you mention? My grandfather, John
J McKinney, born 1843, in Lincoln Co., TX, came to Hill Co., TX after the
Civil War. His mother, Elizabeth Pigg Wakefield McKinney, arrived in Hill Co
by 1867. J J's brother William Henry and their mother, Elizabeth, bought
land in Hill Co. Elizabeth had three Wakefield children: Charles, Delia, and
Sarah. Sarah married Gaylon M Sawyers and they came to Texas also. I have
land deeds records for Gaylon Sawyers also. Gaylon was the son of George W
and Rebecca Sawyers. Is this the same family?
