Notes:  Alice Scott is mentioned in transcript 1 on line 5 above as Alice Yarborough the deceased mother of Alfred, James Q. and Mant.  James Quincy Yarborough married Alice Scott.

I had a hard time with the name of Mrs. Owen (formerly Mrs Yarborough), but with a search at RootsWeb World Connect Project I found that her name was Mant and she was the daughter of John Q. Yarborough and Alice Scott.  Mant Yarborough married T. M. Owen.

Alice Scott Yarborough's parents are James Scott and Sarah Lane.  Sarah Lane is mentioned on the first line in transcript 5 above as Sarah Scott, deceased.  I presume that the property in Grimes County and Atascosa County was the property of Sarah or James Scott perviously, as it notes that probate minutes for Sarah Scott are found in Grimes Co., TX.
