Louis Boone Brinlee, youngest son of Hiram Carroll Brinlee and Diza Caroline Boone, was closest to my Grandfather Lawrence Carroll Brinlee in age among his older half-siblings and, according to my Uncle Bill Brinlee, was his favorite brother. According to him, Louis and Mollie moved out to California from Oklahoma in 1942, but sometime before my grandfather’s death in 1953 came back out to Texas to visit him, which made my grandfather very happy. They went together to visit the grave of their father Hiram. Clarence Oda Brinlee may have been Louis’ stepson.

Mary Jane "Mollie" Bennett was the daughter of John David Bennett and Exie Emmaline Casey.

I correspond with a couple of members of this family, but if there are any more of you out there, I would love to hear from you! 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).
