Dora had at least 8 children that I know of: Robert Edward, William Jackson Madison Powell (1 person), an un- name infant, Henry Marris, John Frank, Malcom Leon, Mildred Evlyn (my grandmother), and E.B. I know that the family was in Rusk county for a time, then moved to Kaufman county, where several of the children were born. Dora died in or around 1952. I have a fair amount of info in the children, but this is about all the information I have on my great- grandmother.
