George David (Dave) Mize & his wife, Martha Columbus (Key) Mize.

Martha Columbus Mize was my father half sister of which he never saw. They left Wedowee, Alabama and moved to Texas some time before 1900. They left with mules and wagon and their children. I located them when my younger brother gave me a picture postcard having a Picture of Marvin Mize with his wife and one child. It was sent prior to 1918 that is when my grandfather died. It was post marked Hermleigh, Texas.
