Negro Baseball - Texas

I know this maybe a long shot but were there any Negro Baseball teams in the Paris, Texas area? I have been talking to some of my relatives and they seem to remember going to baseball games were some of my relatives played. I am not sure if they were in league, barnstormers (exhibition players) or just locals players. I am looking for information on the Paris Tigers (later changed to Paris Brown Sox) i.e. Rosters, pictures, newspaper articles, etc.

Their names are: FRAZIER: Tillman, Sr. (my grandfather), his sons: Ennis, Orzo (my dad) and Cleo, Tillman, Jr., Melvin, Earnest, Earl and Lewis B. Lamar county, Texas is full of Fraziers', I am just starting with these few names.

If there is some information available about them, I will pay for copies and postage.

As always, I appreciate any assistance and suggestions you may have. I have sent this same request to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum as well.

Thank you in advance for your time and patience in fulfilling this request. You email me at
