Thomas,
Early childhood in a ranching setting has proven to be beneficial at times. I found it to be hard physical work. Only now do I look back on that time period as enjoyable.

Not knowing what family trees intrest you, I will confine my disclosure to those that were English. If you wish to know the history of the US families please indicate. Send me an email with your address.

Yes, I would love to have the information you have on the Franklands. You may send the information to:
David Hardgrave
Fast Drop, Inc.
1846 Rosemeade Pkwy, #297
Carrollton, Texas 75007
U.S.A.

James Sayner b:4 Jan 1819 d:15 Feb 1897
He could have grown up in Yorkshire and as a young man he won the English national fast-walking contest for one year. He was also a bare knuckle boxer and taught his daughter, Eliza Jane, the art which she used on occasion. James was a shipwright by trade in Bristol, England. He traveled to New Orleans about the year 1850 on his way to Austin County, Texas. He brought his sea chest of woodworking tools that was unfortunately sold by his son. His physical appearance was over 6 ft.with "a face that started at his chin and ended at the back of his head" (bald). He paid gold for the land in Texas.
