George W Massey

There is a small section on George W Massey at and a George W Massey is listed as a head-right owner in Collin County, Texas. Does anyone have any details on this branch of the family and are these the same George?

Elizabeth Ann Mitchusson [b: 13 Jan 1821] --m [1]: George S. Massey on 28 July 1842 in Caldwell Co., KY and m [2]: Col. James Chiles on 7 Oct 1874. The 1860 Grayson County, Texas census lists George and Eliza with their six children. According to An Illustrated History of Grayson County, Texas by Graham Landrum and Allan Smith [published 1967], George S. Massey was one of the wealthiest landowners near Preston Bend on the Red River--an area of Grayson County known for its large plantations before the Civil War. George Massey died sometime after the Civil War. The children of George and Elizabeth are said to have been:
---------------------Henry W. Massey [b: KY]
---------------------Mary E. Massey [b: KY]
---------------------George W. Massey [b: KY]
---------------------James W. Massey [b: TX]
