This listing originally appeared in 1987 and 1988 issues of Footprints, the quarterly publication of the Fort Worth Genealogical Society. It is reprinted here with permission.
I have typed it as it appeared, I know there are some errors in the original listing and I am sure I have made some myself. If possible it is always good to check the original document. Words that I wasn't sure of or I believe are in error, I put a question mark by and my comments are added in these brackets <>. Janis Wamsley
