Thank you for your reply. I began my search many years ago and my sources relatives still living told me that Sarah lived with an Uncle in Coryell County. He was a physician. She alos claimed she was related to the Amarillo Bivins and had some Indian blood. My mother was Margaret A McKinnney,Jesse L Shannon's daughter. I would like to correspond with you more. I remember going over to my Aunt's house and seeing older man sitting in bedroom in rocking chair. I do not ever remember talking with him. I do not know with my grandfather Jesse and he were astranged.
