    • I am trying to locate the heirs of Thomas Wyatt and Alva Chandler Chesnut. They were married in Nacogdoches County, Texas on 30 Aug 1891. They had one son named Thomas Grady Chesnut (b. 9 Nov 1896); and three, possibly four, daughters, seq. Johnnie M, b. Nov 1892; Pauline, b. 1901; Mamie M., b. 1906; Hazle G., b. 1909; and Mary, b. 1910. They moved to Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas in 1919. Texas Death records show Thomas Wyatt died on 07 Feb 1951 in Johnson County, TX and Alva died 12 Aug 1957 in Bexar County, TX. Thomas Grady died 12 Dec 1970 in Tarrant County, TX. I've found no information on the daughters. Thomas Wyatt & Alva reserved mineral rights when they sold their land in Nacogdoches County, and I'm trying to determine the present owners. Any information would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to reply privately, please send your information to braswelland@sbcglobal.net. Thanks in advance for your help.
