Sherri Durmis Dad told me they called George “Steer” and Lewis Alvin “Bay Jack”, I did write that down, I only remember him referring to Benjamin Terry as Uncle Terry but Dee sounds familiar to me as well but that may have been what my Grandmother (Juanita Sawyers) called him. He wanted me to go with him to OK. for a Sawyers reunion we talked about it and he was going to find out information on it but he got sick with lung cancer and passed away 5 years ago. He also told me two of the brothers worked for an oil drilling company there before Lewis did, (I can’t remember which two) and he came to get a job there but the owner didn’t think he could handle the job as he was a small man, his brothers assured the owner that he could outwork and lift any man he had there so he hired him. Eventually Lewis bought one of the owners old rigs and started his own company.

Sherri Durmis I am unsure were the Mitchell family came from I am still researching them. My G. Grandmother Irene Lucy, who would be a daughter to Frances in the picture, Married Louis Alvin Sawyers in Polk, Co, Mo. At some point the family lived there I believe.
