 notes: Nathaniel and Nancy finally settled in Denton Co TX prior to 1 JUL 1844.
       Later, Nancy patented 640 acres, Oliver, 160 acres, James, 160 acres.
       Michael was granted a certificate for 160 acres, but it was never patented.

        Because of the French family, the area of the present city of Lake Dallas,
       TX was known as French. It was changed to Garza, then Lake Dallas.
       Much of the old settlement is now under water.
