I have a copy of the book that I would be willing to loan to you and let you copy it. I only have 2 copies left which I want my 2 daughters to have. I would love to be able to visit you and see wherevthe Sayles plantation was located. I don't live very far away - near Katy, TX. There are no Sayles family members still in Abilene. I can tell you where to find the graves there. My mother (Harriet Mothershead) is buried there. There are 2 Sayles plots there: one where John Sayles is buried and another where his son, Henry is buried along with Henry's descendants. My grandmother, Caroline Welcome Sayles, was Henry's daughter and my mother, Harriet Mothershead, was Caroline's daughter. I can also tell you where Henry's house is located in Abilene. It is still standing and has a historical marker. I grew up going to Abilene and hearing stories about the Sayles family and I would be glad to share anything I know with you. I look forward to hearing from you. My name is Julie Parnell and you can call me at 281-578-1686.
