RE: Lydia Myers
I can't see how to attach a picture here. Did you send a pic of William? I don't see it. I'm on my phone, that may be the problem.

RE: Lydia Myers
I am sending you one pictures of William Myers and also some other pics I got from my aunt. William was her grandfather. I did notice that the 1900 census show Ollie and Pearl living with William and Rebecca, so I think maybe they did stay with him. I also don't really know much about them. I will look further.
Found this about their marriage maybe some more info tracing back from here.

RE: Lydia Myers
I have information on William Myers family, from other researchers that goes back pretty far, but not much on Lydia. Some sources mention a family bible and I do know William's last wife, Rebecca Brush kept a family bible where she kept all family info. It is my guess that is the bible that is being referred to, but it's just a guess.
L. M. Preslar is shown in Texas marriages 1837-1973. There may be some info on her in that document. This is not my research but it is all I have. She married William October 8, 1876 in Whitney tx. Her last child, Mattie, was born in 1884 in Hill co tx. Lydia died in 1885, so I'm guessing she died of complications of childbirth, which was so common then.
There are references to her name being Lydia Preslar, Lydia M. Presley, and Lydia Sarah Presley. That's about all I know about her. If I come across anything else I'll let you know. Is the picture of her yours? Thank you for sharing it. I do have some pics of William I can share with you if you would like.
Thank you for contacting me.

Lydia Myers
Hi, My great grandfather was William Myers. His daughter, Ama was my grandmother. Have you found any more info on Lydia. Thank you for adding her picture.

Hi, I cannot find a record to show that John D. Austin's parents were Stephen and Anna Lamb Austin. I do find info leading me to believe his parents were William Austin and Sarah Qualls.

Can you point me in the direction of the book you reference? Thanks so much!

Alexander Strickland
L D Strickland Confederate pension application says he moved to Ga Dec 24, 1840. There are two applications the second of which says he was born in Fannin County, GA and Union County, GA which might place Alexander there prior to 1850. Here is the link:
