Jackie, this post is quite old, so I don't know where you stand on all of this but if I am correct in my genealogy recording, we may actually be cousins (3rd cousins 1 removed).
Daniel P. Thomas married my 2nd great grand aunt Delany Ann Pope sister to my 2nd great grand father Reuben Pope who married Parmela E. Kimbro. They had 7 children, one of which was William Addison Pope who married Minnie Rachel Vance in 1902 in Doniphan. They had two childrend William Earl Pope 1904 and Edna May Pope 1906, my grandmother. Edna Married Ralph Wainwright Riley and they had one daughter my mom and one son, both still living.
I am very much interested in finding more information about the William (how he died at 34) his father Reuben and his father Joseph. If you have any information or have a family tree I may view I'd love to look at them.
My family tree is public. It is "Riley Brenchley Family Tree". I am still working on many areas of it and have the information you proved above is most interesting.
