Yes, it is a real mystery ! I find it very odd that it listed her as widowed. And according to an interview given by some of the Hamer decendants in 2000 at the Texas Ranger museum they thought she had drowned shortly after their marriage. And what a story about Hamers second wife Gladys. The book by Bill O'Neal " The Johnson-Sims Feud - Romeo & Juliet West Texas Style " is quite something! Even her family was shocked to find that she had in fact killed her first husband. So far I've not been able to find out much at all about Mollie, other than she married Raymond Ford and drowned while trying to save 2 children. I very much appreciate your response and any info you run across I'd be deeply grateful!
