I believe Mabel is my g grandma's sister, Annie Eufamie Leffel. She married my g grandfather, George Robert Wilhoit in the Graham, Tx area in 1899. My mother is a Willhoit. My grandfather is their youngest son, Millard Leon Willhoit. He passed away in 2003. I have been trying to trace my g grandfathers Indian heritage.
