T.W. Aynes (Ted) was my maternal grandfather. He was married to a Mary Mable Butler and they lived in the OKC area. I'm pretty sure he was from the Arkansas area. My mother remembers traveling from OK to AR in a covered wagon as a child. T.W.'s mother's name was Annie Westmoreland, [she was a first cousin to Johnnie Westmoreland (the one who played Tarzan on TV)] and she was half Cherokee Indian. She was married to ?Jimmy Aynes ?who ran a Trading Post in Indian Territory, Oklahoma? He (according to family word of mouth tradition) was running from the law for killing a man and the Indians hid him. That is the only information I have concerning the Aynes and would appreciate any help.

Thanks for the help in advance!
