From Hugh Ottis Cordell's death certificate on Ancestry in 1951 in Lubbock, TX, I saw his parents listed as William Henry Cordell (B: Hunt County, TX) and Meria Biggs (B: unknown). I then found William and Meria's marriage in 1895 in Taylor, TX. I can find no other records for William and Meria (maybe it's supposed to be Maria).
Also of interest is that Hugh Cordell married an Ola Elizabeth Busby (Busbee, Buzby), probably abt 1918. Ola's sister, Addie, also married a Cordell. She married a William Henry Cordell in 1915. Could this later WH Cordell be a JR, and a brother to Hugh? Brothers married to sisters? I can't find proof but it wouldn't be the first time.
I would like to pursue the Biggs lineage if possible. It may help with a brick wall of mine.
