We have started to trace our family history and are very greatful to members of both of our families that had blazed the trail before us.

On the Lowe side a thank you to the family of Kenneth Hall Grant, who passed away in January 1999, for the information that goes back to John DeLacie cir 1200. The family tree of John DeLacie connects to Anna Aspiza Vaughn who married Robert Edward Lowe. We are still searching for the parents of Robert Edward Lowe b. 1870 in New York. We have found out that his parents were William and Emilie Harrison Lowe and that there was at least one brother but no name.

On the Markham side many thank yous to Charles Markham for all of his research and helpful suggestions, to Elaine Markham Keller for her information and getting to know her, and to David W. Morgan for his information and understanding.

On the Goodnight side my information came from Charles A. Markham who had done a lot of the research on the Markham side. There were two marriages between the Goodnights and the Markhams.

On the Lefner side to Dwight Lefner and Nyo J. Lefner Lowe for their memory and answering questions. We are searching for the parents of Dock Randall Lefner, born 1858 in either Kentucy or Virginia. We do know that Dock Randall Lefner married Effie Victoria Watts 29 December 1889 in Bastrop Co., Texas and that Effie was born in Texas to Unknown Watts and Unknown Ferrell. I have been told that some of the Watts family move to around Florence, Arizona in the 1930's.

On the LaRoe side a thank you to Jean Evelyn LaRoe Markham Conger for her information and to all the LaRoe's that have answered many questions. I have also used "Our Texas LaRoe's" written by Virgil LaRoe Barnett who passed away but I have been in contact with his daughter, Rosemary LeGrotte. Virgil put alot of work into his book and I am very grateful.

The surnames we are researching are DISHMAN, DUFF, FERRELL, GOODNIGHT, LA ROE, LEFNER, LOVELL, LOWE, MC GUYER, MARKHAM, MILLHOUSE, VAUGHN, WATTS, AND WEEDON.
