This is to Larry Oswalt and any one else who may have more info to give. I think you are right about the spelling of Dela'Fleuri or De'Lafleuri, My mother told me about the family name change but she really didn't know why. Because grandpaw would not talk about it. He was born in Gillespie county,Tx on Aug.4,1894 to Exla Americas Nixon He had brothers and sisters some I can't remember what their names are,but there was a WIlliam,George and May, I think Finieus we called Uncle Fine (not sure of the spelling)their were about 13 or 16 kids can't remember if all lived.I have his fathers name somewhere in some papers have to look. There are alot of Flora family sill in and around San Antonio area Sumerset,Uvalde,Devine,Hondo.With all the kids and grandkids.Uncle George had a son called Little George, I think a girl called Dolly .My grandpaw told me about his grandmother that his grandpaw or gr.gr grandpaw married one and that they the kids used to call her the old witch because she still cooked out side .she was also to be a medicine (man) they came to her to get back at some one who did them wrong or made them mad. For love and she carried a bag around her neck with stuff in it. They would go a long way around her tent to go feed and get the cows in.I wish I new more and listened better when I was younger. let me hear from anyone who might know more. My mothers name was Dorthy(Dorothy) Loraine Flora Her mother was Katie Dabbs from the Leakey area. I'm looking for the Dabbs and Nixon familys from that area let me hear from you too.
