I'm a long descendent of the Dubose famiyl tracing back to France through Issac and Sarah. Although in Texas the family name was changed to Willis, which I now carry but my middle name still carrys the family history.

I just read your posted message from Oct. 2000, indicating that the Texas Dubose Family changed their name to Willis?? I also descend from Isaac and Suzanne thru their son, John. Although I do NOT claim to be in the know regarding all the happenings in the family, your message is the first I've heard of a name change. I would be really interested in hearing the story behind such an event.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely, Ruthie

Texas Dubose

Whereas you go through John I on ther hand go through Peter. But the way I understand the story is:
Rufus Pinkey Dubose and his brother were driving cattle for themselves and friends of theirs. The herd was lost and a simple coin toss determined who would take the balme. My great-grandfather lost and was forced to move to New Mexico where he changed his name to J.D. Willis. From there came Everett Willis who had also changed his name from Dubose. He was my grandfather. He died when I was two, so most of the details I have are sketchy. Then my father and his brother where the first born Willis' and my 3 siblings and myself are 2 born generation. Now I'm simply trying to piece together my past. My parents had found and old family photo that had Dubois sratched out on the back and then Dubose written underneath. So my parents named me, Zane Dubois Willis. My only link to my heritage.
