The original information on the John Allen Hornsby/Narcissa Cole Family was taken from Daniel Preston Cole's note book on genealogy which was given to Alma Hornsby Bryan in 1972. Connie Cole Pace (who gave the family information to Alma) resided at Route 1 Box 252B, Chander, Arizona at teh time the information was compiled. Alma Hornsby Bryan provided this and other Hornsby Family information to Jesse W. White in 1992. At this time she resided at: P.O. Box 217, Coleman, Texas, 76834. Alma is a descendant of Leonard Arnold Hornsby, John Allen Hornsby's brother.

Since the original information was compiled additional information has been added and some corrections made from information in the Jackson Decal Hornsby Family Bible, and from surviving family members.
