RE: Wilmer Ward
I have a lot of information on the Ward and Benford side of the family and I'd be happy to share it with you. Just let me know.

I did find an Annette M. Ward that died Nov 1971 in Dallas, TX, but she was a premature baby.

RE: Wilmer Ward
Hi Ed. The headstone only has the surname on it. Wilmer's information is only on the footstone. And Annette was still alive in 2012. The following is Wilmer's sister's obit where she mentioned Annette:

She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald T. Gibson; her father, Lee Roy Ward; her mother, Ethel Mae Richardson Ward; three brothers, Jack Ward, Dr. Leamon Monroe Ward and Wilmer (Bill) Ward, and one sister-in-law, Mildred Mayes Ward.
She is survived by a loving sister-in-law, Annette Vinson Ward, of Dallas, five nieces and nephews, Ivan Ward, of Coolidge, Amelia Ward Davison, of Dallas, William "Bill" Ward, of Mexia, Wilmer "Bill" Ward, of Coolidge, and Suzanne Ward DePaul, of Dallas; 13 great-nieces and nephews and 12 great-great-nieces and nephews, as well as loving friends in Tyler.
Mrs. Gibson graduated from Coolidge High School in 1938 and attended the University of North Texas. After her marriage, she moved to Tyler, where she lived until her death. She was a member of the First Baptist Church, of Tyler.

Visitation will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, at Burks Walker Tippit Funeral Home in Tyler. Graveside services will be at the Mexia City Cemetery at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 6, 2012.
The family would like to thank The Heights of Tyler for exceptional care and give very special thanks to Linda Jones, who cared for Auntie for eight years with love and devotion.
Auntie - we will miss your feistiness. We love you.;

I found her daughter on facebook and she mentioned her mother in 2014. So she may still be alive. Her daughter lives in Georgetown, TX.

RE: George Phillips
Hi Ed. I am happy to transfer it back. This Geo Phillips is my great grandfather. I just don't know how to do the transfer.

RE: Merchant Family
Hi Ed, this is from a while back, I looked for you on facebook and do see some Ed Sanders but living in other states?

Anyhow yes my father in law Jr. Merchant, his parents were divorced when he was about 12 so in 1938, he was born in 1926.. His mom did indeed marry Addkinson, they lived in California.. His dad Thurman Merchant Sr. born in 1888 had also been married one time before to a Violet and they had a son that died as an infant. So Thurman Merchant Jr. was the only child of Eva Yarbrough and Thurman Merchant Sr. I have their family tree linked to my on ancestry if you are interested I can invite you as a guest for free, you just need to give me your e-mail address.. E-mail it to

Hope to hear from you, take care~ Colette Merchant

I have a photo of a marker for Houghton Wimsatt - 1897-1922 - would that be the same person you are looking for?
