I don't know if this is the same line -- but it includes Willam P. Endsley and his wife Mary ... and other names (Amanda Endsley married Wilson McClung) from your list. From my great-grandfather W. F. Endsley, I have a document, dictated in 1939:


Written in 1939-1940 by W. F. Endsley and dedicated to his daughter Mary
(Mrs. Barney M. Smith, Sr.)

Copied in 1975 by Barney M. Smith, Jr.


by William F. Endsley

       The following is a biography as well as a genealogy of the Endsley Family and all of their relatives so far known to me. My grandfather, Joseph Endsley, affectionately known by everyone as "Uncle Joe," was the Patriarch of the Endsley Family as well as a pioneer in the early days of the Lone Star State. He was born in South Carolina December 21, 1799, and moved from there to the State of Georgia in his middle life. His wife was named Nellie (MIss Nellie Neill).

       They came to Texas a few years before the Civil War and settled in Cass County. They raised eight children, the names of whom are as follows: Mary Jane, William P., James, Mandy, Samuel, Julia, Fannie, and Ellen. Some of the children were married before leaving Georgia; the others in Texas. Martha (sic) Jane married Israel Dempsey. They raised a large family of boys and girls, all of whom have passed away, and with father and mother are buried in the cemetery at Old Macedonia Church in Miller County, Arkansas.

       William P. Endsley, my father, was born in South Carolina December 21, 1827 and moved to Georgia with his father while a youth. He married Miss Mary E. Urquhard[t?] in January 1854. They had eight children, the names of whom are as follows: Henry A., Joseph T., William F., Sallie F., James L., Lizzie, Samuel, and Emma. Henry A. was born in Georgia December 16, 1854. He died in Texarkana, Texas, Kune 2, 1936 and was buried in Rose HIll Cemetery. He married Sallie McWilliams in 1886. They had four children, three girls and one boy. Two of the girls live near Texarkana. One of the girls while a child. The boy, Charley, lives in Long Beach California.

(There is much more on this. I've just started to look more closely at this.)
