They are J.H. and W.E. Doyle, the former a merchant at Granbury, where he has lived for fifty years, and the latter a practicing attorney of Teague, Tex.
They were born in Pickens District, now Oconee County, S.C., April 26, 1846, and they served the Confederacy as members of Company G, 7th South Carolina Cavalry, Gary’s Brigade, taking an active part in the strenuous campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia down to Appomattox.
