Notes: Nancy Pairlee Yarbrough Tilley Brown is the daughter of Lorenzo Dow Yarbrough and Nancy Parilee White. Nancy Yarbrough first married June 1, 1898 in LaSalle Co., TX to Valentine "Vol" Harris Tilley. After Vol's death in 1921 Nancy Pairlee married A. B. Brown (date not known). Cull and Ulysess Lee "U.L." Tilley are two of her children from her first marriage. Nancy and Mr. Brown did not have any children.

This is what I was told about the following people:

J. T. West was Thomas Jefferson West II. He was the Justice of the Peace in Moore, TX for many years.

J. E. Dubose was Jessee Earl Dubose who ran a Sinclair Station in Moore, TX.  A Maggie Lee Dubose married Benjamin Clinton Yarbrough, a newphew of Nancy Pairlee Yarbrough Tilley, Brown.  Benjamin and Maggie had children born in Medina County, but it is not known if J. E. Dubose and Maggie are related.

J. S. Cochman, was James H. Cochran who was the Constable or Deputy Sheriff in Moore, or it could have been James Lesley Cochran, his son.
