I don't think I mentioned that James Hiran and Nancy Ann (Masters) Drain came from the Fayetteville, AR area. I don't think any of their children were married at that time. They came to Collin Co., TX where they all became cotton farmers. Colin the county northeast of Dallas CO. When Lake Lavon was put in, my grandfather sold most of this land to the Corp of Engineers and it is now underwater. My parents moved to Garland (Dallas Co.) in the early 1940's and that is where I still live today. Just a little added info on where my part of the Drain family came to from Arkansas.

P.S. I would also like any information on Mary Ball (George Washington's mother) who I have been told is in the Drain genealogy somewhere.
