Gerald Witt wrote this book in 1986. It is no longer available, but he has allowed me to present some of it in my web pages. As with the narrative of his grandmother, the text is not available as a text file due to all the computer changes, etc. I could not use my OCR to give text that was reasonably correct. So I think the next best thing is to give JPG files that are readable on screen, without extra space and size of all the borders and page numbers. You may download the JPG files to your computer then print them in any size you like.

Back Cover

Pages 14-17.

Gerald gives the 1860 Federal Census of Kerr County, which on page 24 has his Denton family enumerated in Precinct II of Comfort, Texas.

This Elizabeth Denton and her brother are siblings of Jim's great great grandmother Sally Ann McFadin Gass, who settled in Bonham, Fannin County, Texas, on the Red River.

Done!, Well I hope I have all those that are most useful that are common to both our family lines, and all them in the correct order! Let me know what you think.

I decided to include a few pages for friends of mine in Sitka that are in Geralds book.

Hiding my address underneath to avoid getting spam and unsolicited viruses has not worked very well. You will have to type in my email address from the picture file above. Perhaps you will also have to verify that you are a real person and not a robot if you are not in my mailing list. I apologize, but I know of no other good way to limit the junk mail.
