General Notes: Husband - Capt Daniel Shackleford WILLS
==========================================================================================

I am unsure of everything about Captain Dan after he left Texas. Mamaw said "one of them
went off to New Mexico and was never heard from again".

There is an article in Frontier Times Magazine called "Lost Creek and Voca in
McCulloch County" by Clarence Snider, Vol 23, No 11, dated August 1946. It discusses the
early settlers of the area and Dan Wills is mentioned. There is a similar article in
Frontier Times Magazine, Vol 11, No 10. Vol 6 No 3, December 1928, also mentions
Dan. Another article, a history of Camp San Saba, mentions Dan in Vol 10, No 6, plus
several other articles.

I believe the family was in New Mexico in 1880 and out of reach of the Federal Census
Bureau; there were only 12 counties in 1880.
