Hello. You mention the books for the schools in Erath Co. I'm wondering if
you would mind to look for my young McElroy children please.
My grandmother Elizabeth York McElroy died in 1895 and is buried at Huckaby
in Erath Co. My dad was born 20 February, 1888. Uncle Pat, whose real name
was Oscar Lee, born 25 July 1893, and James Hubert (called Hubert) was born
20 Feb 1891.
I found my Jacob McElroy in Muskogee Nation, Indian Territory on the 1900
census, so know Jacob didn't stay put. But I thought those few years after
Elizabeth's death, they may still be in Erath Co. I have a letter from my
Aunt Minnie, stating that she went to school with the little McElroy boys.
That was at Sims Valley school in Erath Co. Her name was Minnie Tucker
McElroy. She later married my dad's oldest brother!
I will so appreciate you doing this, when you can find the time.
