Surnames: BICE, BYCE, HENDRICKS, WEAVER

Marriage, birth, death records for David E. WEAVER. Moved to Pecos County from Cedar Hill, Dallas County, Texas after 1885. In Cedar Hill, he was married to Mary Ellen (Mollie) HENDRICKS in 1879. Mollie died 7/26/1887 in Cedar Hill. Believe David to have subsequently married Wrenda (Aunt Rendy) ?, who later remarried someone with the surname of BICE or BYCE and lived in Ft. Stockton. The BICE marriage produced at least one child, Evelyn BICE. Believe she was born between 1900 and 1925. David may have moved on to California.

Surnames: ODOM, PACE
I am looking for any and all information on Guy Presley ODOM or Guy Preston ODOM. He was my paternal grandmother's father, but he and my great-grandmother divorced in the early 1920s. It's a sore subject, so my grandmother either doesn't know or won't tell anything about him. He married Joda Pauline PACE on June 2, 1915, and his two daughters, Agnes Lucille ODOM (July 14, 1916) and Clara ODOM (1922-1967) were born in Fort Stockton. Any information would be very helpful...I have none myself! He would have been born at the turn of the century, so I doubt he's still alive, but he might well have remarried and had more children. There are a few GP or Guy P Odoms in the phone book, but a mailing to them all turned up nothing. Thanks in advance!

WILLIAMS: Handwritten family records show that my great great grandfather, Redmond John WILLIAMS, was born in Texas in 1845. Tracing him through census records has proved impossible.
