Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a family historian and genealogist for the many families in my and my husband's ancestry.

I research the following surnames: Hollingsworth, Mason, Gray, Willis, Robbins, Wheeler, Love, Littlejohn, Foster, Pledger, Munsey, Streetman, Tower, Dunn, Woods, Key, Ashbrook, Hefley, Vinson, Devoe, McNabb, and Sullivan. I enjoy using www.findagrave.com and other websites for research.

Look for me with Robbins and others at Babylon Rural Cemetery, Babylon, NY; Oak Hill Cemetery, Whitewright, Texas for Hollingsworth; Gray and others at the inaccessible and overgrown Kyle Cemetery, Anderson County, Texas, Antrim Cemetery in Houston County, Texas, and Ellisors at Evergreen Cemetery near Cold Springs, San Jacinto County, Texas for my major www.findagrave.com contributions.

Denton Record-Chronicle (TX) - Saturday, January 2, 2010

Deceased Name: Jessie Ellis-Bryant

Jessie Ellis-Bryant, 90, of Denton passed away on Dec. 31, 2009. She was born March 12, 1919, in Kaufman to Ballard and Virginia Bryan Godwin. She attended TWU and worked as a secretary for 40 years at the Denton County Welfare Office and at NTSU. Jessie married Charles (Ike) Ellis on June 21, 1940, in Dallas, Texas. After his death in 1996, she married Bill Bryant on Sept. 7, 2001.
Jessie was very active in the community and belonged to many organizations including the TWU Alumnae Association, the Bungalow Class, The Shakespeare Club and Bible Study Fellowship. She was a member of the First Methodist Church of Denton. Jessie loved people and was involved with helping others all her life. She enjoyed entertaining in her home and was a wonderful cook. Mostly, she adored being a wife and mother and devoted herself totally to her family.
Jessie is survived by two daughters, Susanna Trevino of Chapel Hill, NC, and Geraldine Ellis of San Antonio; identical twin sister Julia Davis; sisters Glenna Sessums, Jane Talley and Joan Barrett; granddaughters Debbie Simmons of Greenville, SC, and Anne Trevino of Durham, NC, great-granddaughter Sarah Simmons; step-granddaughter Kim Bryant Manzer of Denton; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husbands, she was preceded in death by parents Ballard and Virginia Godwin; brother, Bryan Godwin and granddaughter, Leslie Trevino.
A memorial service in her honor will be held on Monday, Jan. 4 at 2 p.m. in the Denton Good Samaritan Village Chapel with a visitation reception to follow.

RE: Jesse Lee Godwin
Okay the family was originally found in Henderson County Texas in the 1930 census and I did find a Jessie Godwin (female) who died 7/17/1975 in Henderson Co Texas. It did not give any other information but first name spelled as Jessie. Do you have an email address I have one more thing to check

RE: Jesse Lee Godwin
found her parents died in 9/1982 and 5/1987 in Denton, Denton, Texas. Her brother Lester died 3/12/1994 in Tyler, Smith Co TX.
I did find them in 1940 in Kaufman TX but neither Julie or Jesse lived at home with the parents at that time. Lester and Glennie and then two twins, Jane and Joan age 6 lived in the household with the parents.
Sorry was supposed to AF/AM for African American.
If she was not listed in the parents obit, I would think possibly she passed, but I find no record of that. When is the last time she saw her sister? In what state?

RE: Jesse Lee Godwin
have you tried to find the obit for the father and mother Ballrd died 9/1982 and Virginia died 5/1987 in Denton, the county libraries or colleges usually have the obits.

RE: Jesse Lee Godwin
I did find Jesse and Julia on the census in Texas in 1930, I checked for Jesse Lee anything born in 1920 for the 1940 census and found two possibilities, one other is she is AF/AM,

One in 1940 is Jesse Lee Hudson just married to Willie B Hudson in Pampa, Gray Texas they are white from Texas.

The other one is a lady named Jesse Lee Wells from Texas that in 1940 resided in San Diego California, she is divorced and had a son named Jesse Elmer Wells. She is white.

For AF/AM there was a Jesse Lee Edwards married to Andrew, from Upshur Texas

I'm not sure if Texas has marriage records on ancestry. I'll check.....Cat
