Subject: Scott/Johnson/Daniels/Banks Family, Grimes County, TX circa 1878-1920
Author: Laura Flanagan

Surnames: Scott Johnson Daniels Banks James Richards Felson Burrel
I am looking to unravel the mystery of a family Bible I found.
The names in the Bible indicate it could possibly belong to descendants of John & Margaret (Banks) Scott (Married in 1878) of Grimes County, Texas.
31 different individuals are listed in the Bible, but only one relationship is given: Grandma Kitty Banks.
According to the 1900 & 1910 Census, a family matching the description, and many of the names and dates lived in Grimes County, TX Precinct 6. The 1920 census shows the same family (minus the head of household, John Sr.) living in the same Precinct, but specifies the street as "Courtnay and Retreat Road"
I am looking for help sorting out the rest of the names in the Bible, and identifying the relationships.
Thank you so much in advance!
