Dan & Mollie Moody family of Cleburne & Houston, Texas (ca 1870-1950)

I am searching for descendants of Dan Moody, who was born in Cleburne, Texas, in the 1860s and later moved to Houston where he served as city auditor for many years (I think it was city auditor; it might have been Harris Co., but I think that was his nephew/adopted son, Will Moody, who was elected Harris Co. auditor).

I have a box of photographs and old letters, etc., of the Moodys that I inherited. I have most of them scanned. If I can locate some of the Moody descendants who would be interested, I would like to share them. Many are identified, but some are not. I would love to get the latter ID'd. These belonged to my great-grandmother, Sarah Jane Moody Wimberly, who was the only sister of Dan Moody. (They were the children of John W. Moody and Eleanor Valentia Martin.)

Some of the photographs that are not identified may actually be of family members of the other brothers, especially the children of William and Georgia Moody, both of Cleburne. Dan and his wife Mollie raised those kids after the deaths of both parents. (Mollie was Georgia's sister.)

The other brothers were Joseph J., who lived in Kentucky and W. Va. (he had two sons and a daughter); Archie (who died young and only had one son, Charlie, who later lived in Oklahoma); John, who was married twice and moved around a lot (he had three children by his first wife: a son, Mercer, and two daughters); and Sam.

I don't have birth and death dates handy at the moment, but I do have most of them.
