In 1910 Julia lived in Brown County with her daughter, Irene Electra Landrum born 4-22-1871. Also living with them was her son Randrum born @ 1878. Julia died in 1912 in Comanche County and is buried in the Oakwood Cementery. There are several other Morris's buried there also but I don't know if there is a connection. Barbara Gotcher

I am searching for information on the TUBB family, who lived in Comanche Co. in the early 1900's. I know that there is a ROY MCKINNEY TUBB (born in Comanche Co. in 1901 and died in 1936) buried in Sardis Cemetery northeast of Comanche. He was the son of CHARLES MARVIN TUBB, born March 24, 1882 in Louisiana. Charles was married to a woman named Lizzie (probably Elizabeth). They had two other children: ETHEL M. (born in Comanche Co. in 1904) and CHARLIE H. (born in Comanche Co. in 1908). Charles died before 1910 and Lizzie was married to a JAMES MCENTYRE. They were still living there in the 1920 census. After that, I don't know what became of the family, except for finding out Roy's burial place there. Does anyone know of this particular family? Is there anyone still living there that knew them? Would like to find the descendents of Roy, Ethel, or Charlie. E-mail me at [email protected] or write me: Duston Brooks P.O. Box 248 Moran, TX 76464. Thanks.
