Surnames: King, Shaw
Looking for information about William Silas and his wife Lula "Shaw" King. Family records indicate that they lived in Tyler, Texas in the late 1890's ~ early 1900's ~ children Lucy, Gertrude and Bertha were born in Tyler. Older brother Jim was born in Indian Territory, OK. They were married in 1890 but not sure where. Lula was born in Georgia and from what I can determine was adopted by James Henry Shaw, a traveling minister ......... it is believed that Lula is of Cherokee descent and came to Indian Territory OK with her parents in the early 1870's from Georgia. She later shows up on a census in Texas with James H Shaw ~ but place of birth is shown as Texas ~ so, this may not be her. William was born around 1863 and died around 1904. She died 21 Mar 1946.
