These photos are of the family of Joseph Milton Carnes and Mary Catherine Webb. They had eleven children, nine who survived to adulthood. There are so many great stories about this family, I don’t know where to start. This family was the epitomy of a Texas pioneer family – a part of the rough and tumble wide open frontier. My great-grandmother, Lola Lillian Carnes, is the front left woman in the picture of the girls. The other day as I was going through family notes that we have, I saw an article by a columnist in the Houston post. He interviewed Webb McNeill Carnes about his grandfather, David Franklin Webb. Webb Carnes is the young boy in the front in the picture of the boys. He ended up passing away the same year that this interview was done.I have attached a picture of the article. I hope it is readable. It is a great story. Along with that story I found a post-it note with more notes about my great-grandmother and Webb. I am attaching that also. I have more stories about this great family that I will share another day.
