Lowe Ranzie Futrell and Ide Belle Rayborn (Rayburn) were my great grandparents. Their son Joseph Willie Futrell and Lois Mable Waldrip were my grandparents by their daughter Ava (living)who married my father, James Clifford Norred. They lived in Rockwall and Kaufman counties. James Lowe was from Tennessee.
Joseph Wilie's first wife was Liela McVay. I have seen Liela spelled Lia and Lila but my mother assures me it was Liela. Very little is known of her. They had three children. James Lowe 1915, Amedrith 1916, And Allegra in 1919. Liela died during this last birth. I have Joseph Willie on the 1920 census living on the family farm with his father, widowed with the three children at age 23.
Joseph Willie remarried in 1922? To Lois Mable Waldrip born 1900. The Waldrip family were share croppers on my g grandfathers land.
Anyone doing research along these family lines? If so please contact me.
