Adoption of Margaret Laxe and William Cecil Phillips

Classification: Query
Surnames: Phillips/Ross/Sampey
Margaret and William Phillips were adopted abt. 1906, Margaret b. Aug 1898 in Red Oak, Ellis Texas: William C. b. 1900 probably in Waco, Tx. Mother and Father were Houston Laxe Phillips and Maud Ross, believe Houston could have been from Louisiana, know nothing on Maud. Both children were adopted abt 1906 by William Alexander and Willie Sampey in Georgetown Texas. Changed their names to William Alexander Sampey and Mary Sue Sampey. They migrated to San Antonio, Tx. (don't know date on that) Margaret Laxe left the family mid teens I believe and went back to her birth name. William stayed and m. Amybell Johnson had one son William Ray. He was accidentally killed in 1926 (electrocuted) his son was 5mos. old. In San Antonio newspaper found ad where Margaret was searching for her brother William, had not seen him in 17 years. I am looking for anything on Houston Laxe Phillips and Maud Ross. Did they both die young/and children left without relatives?
