Wow! You've given me some info on the brands I did not know. And, reminding me of Eli Johnson BLM search I did two years ago! -shame on me! The Reeves 1860 BLM info was new so all's good.
The 1905 Superior Court record was new infomation - thank you! Will have to mull over & sort out.
The marriage record of Eli Jr & Sarah Elston showing Tina Freeman as his mother should read Lucy Truman, can't recall at the moment, original record may read Lucy Truman - typo? I finally figured out why she took the kids and went to Houston to live after Eli Jr. died... her parents were living in Houston!
great research, thank you for responding...
