Josie Boyd Texas Marriages, 1837-1973
marriage: 01 Dec 1895 Limestone Texas spouse: Bon Hickman
1 dau Mattie b Nov 1897

Josie is dec'd by 1900 census when Bon and dau Mattie are living with Bon's parents. Bon is listed as a widow.
No DC seems available for her other than dod on her gravestone. She is in the section w/Bon's parents. Bon did go on to marry again and have 4 kids w/2nd wife Dora Stockton.
Mattie signed her dad Bon's DC when he died as Mattie Hickman TEMPLE.
Did find a 1930 with a Mattie Temple w/approx correct dob
so possibly could be the dau Mattie Hickman;further research ongoing. Also found this Robert Temple was born Col then by 1920 he's drifted down to Bexar Co TX so do believe this is the correct Temple family, he and Mattie marry then head back to Col. Then found a DC for a Robert Temple died in Bexar 1987 but that makes him abt 90y so...
