This is the family of Thomas Wiley Huff and Leatha Norman, who was the sister – and I believe that she was the younger sister – of my great-grandfather William Henry “Jack” Norman. Like Jack Norman, they appear to have ended up in Texas. As a matter of fact, it seems that they were the first to go out to Texas, because they appear on the 1880 census in Grayson County, Texas, whereas the rest of the family apparently came a year or two later.

I would love to share information with anyone related to/researching this family; you can contact me at my e-mail address, which can be found by going to my profile page (there is a link to that page in the About Me section to the left).
