Daughters of Republic of Texas. You only shared surnames. You need to give specific names with actual or probably dates of birth/death and counties where you think they may have lived and years (from-to) in each county. May I suggest you start with Biographical Souvenir of State of Texas, pub. 1889. You can find an index to the book on the Fannin Co., TX genweb site and/or the Grayson Co., TX genweb site. It was a submission to that 1899 publication that helped me prove that William Crenshaw who died ca 1877 in Grayson Co., TX was a sibling of my gg-grandmother Virginia E. M. Crenshaw Boone. I could not prove Virginia was dau of Nicholas Crenshaw but could prove her brother was so the combination of the two proved my lineage directly back to a common grandfather with George Washington. Both DRT and the DAR accept the Biographical Souvenir of State of Texas, pub. 1889. as evidence of lineage. I also used that book to find a bio on another gg-grandfather. Sadly, the names he gives as his parents and siblings are hard to find in South Carolina and Georgia records. Good luck.
