We may have a connection here. I also have a Cousin in Houston and in Fort Worth (there are more in FW). My father was Louis QUIETT (he changed it to (QUIRETT), son of Owen and Sallie Thompson QUIETT. It is my understanding that Owen's father may have been John. John is listed on the 1850 and 1870 Census as John WHITE. I also have a sister and a brother. We were all born outside of his marriage. I do the geneology because I have always known that I was different from my mother's family. Through meeting family and learning about my the heritage I have come to learn that I am very much like the QUIETTS, and I look just like them.
I do have a lot of information, so if you think there is a connection let me know
