The Sawyer family of Robert Sawyer came to Smithville, Texas from Claiborne Parish, Louisiana in the Mid-1800's. They were farmers and lived off the land and used the excess to buy things they could not grow. My Great Grandparents, Daniel Arthur Sawyer and Oregon Cordelia Miller were married on New Years Day in 1873 and lived on the Sawyer Home Place until they grew old and died. My Grandparents moved to Jefferson County, Texas several years after they were married. My Father was born in Smithville, Texas almost one year after their marriage.
