Alton moved to Stamford,Texas with his family in 1932 when he was about 6 years old. They moved from Texico, Curry County, New Mexico where Alton's dad, Bill Coe and his uncle Obie Coe worked on a sheep farm for a short while.
During the short time they lived in New Mexico, our grandpa Aspel Parson Willard Coe ( 64938335) died and is buried in that area, but never found his gravesite.
Alton served in W.W. II; Cpl U.S. Marine Corps and later he was employed as a Yardman at the Cotton Oil Mill in Stamford.
He and his brothers, Alvin and Bill Coe were musicians and usually played "Country and Western" music. I loved to hear them play. They, my cousins) were all older than myself...and I thought they were the most "handsome fellows" that I had ever seen.
Alton's funeral was held in the Kinney Funeral Home chapel officiated by Larry Armentrout, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Stamford.
Alton's first marriage was December 12,1945 to Violet Marie "Vie" Proctor, (the mother of his children.) She died June 24, 2000.
Willie Love Coe (1905 - 1963)
Edith Irene Young Coe (1908 - 1980)
Doris E. Coe (1928 - 2000)*
Note: Regarding your note - the boots on Alton's grave, I understand belonged to Doris. She had itty, bitty feet. I don't believe they were really part of his gravestone, just placed there by family, so I understand. Carla Young, Cemetery Cordinator.
