    My mother was Frances (Forty) Merle Knight, married to Roland R. Rodgers. I am Linda Rodgers and I had a brother, Phil. My mother died about 38 years ago, in Bay City, Texas. I lost contact with her relatives years ago, but these names are familiar to me: Jesse and Mary Knight, Louise Brumfield, Regina, Randy, Reggie, and John Reece Brumfield, John Wayne and David Knight, Hilton Knight, John R. Brumfield, Geneva Brumfield, Lois Knight, Kathy Knight, and so many others that I can’t recall right now. I’m wondering if the family members listed in this obituary might be those of my mother. My email is lgleinser@yahoo.com. Thank you.
