Looking for info about my Father's Family. He was born Olin Maxwell FULLER,
May 30, 1902 Runnels Co, Winters TX. His Father was Jesse FULLER b. 1866
TN, son of Benjamin FULLER, Deport, TX His Mother was Mary Kempie(or
Kempe/Kemper) WATKINS. b. ?
<1870 TN. It is my belief that Jesse & Mary met and married in TX since my
GFather left TN as a child. I have been unable to find any marriage record
for them. Does anyone out there know if I can get a copy of my father's birth
records without knowing his parents correct names? Also is there anywhere
in Winters TX that would have records of WWI casualities from Winters? My
Uncle, Benjamin F. FULLER b. <1902 d. 1918 France? Looking for any way of
verifying this. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
Peggy Fuller Kelley.

I am searching for the father of Herman Lee WILLIAMS (my cousin). Herman's
father's name was John WILLIAMS and was born in Runnels Co in the Rowena
or Miles area. John married my aunt, Mamie Lee GOOCH, about 1904 and they
divorced. Mamie later married Horace WHITLEY. I would like to find out more
information about John WILLIAMS for the descendents of his son, Herman Williams.
I found a John Lee WILLIAMS in the cemetery book, "In Remembrance." According
to this book, John WILLIAMS was born 18 Mar 1885 and died 15 Jul 1931. His
deceased wife in the cemetery book is listed as Lizzie (TUCKER) WILLIAMS
born 2 Dec 1881 and died 20 Dec 1957. John and Lizzie are buried in the Miles
Cemtery. I am wondering if this is the father of Herman Lee WILLIAMS? Betty

RHODES posted by
Beth on Wednesday, May 30, 2001
My dad's birthmother lived in Winters,Texas which is in Runnels County. Her
name is Iris RHODES. We do not know too much about her. We know that she
gave birth to twin boys in Winters,Texas in 1932 and somehow they ended up
in a orphange in Abilene,Texas. My dad's birthname was Richard A. RHODES
but his name was changed when he was adopted by the FERGUSONs. Thanks.
