My sister and I have been researching and searching for connections to our grandfather, William Gaddis, born 1883, possibly in Texas, was in Indian Territory with mother, Sallie Rogers Whalin Gaddis.
William and his brother, Benjamin Allen Gaddis, was raised in Indian Territory and he married Bettie Lee Sheppard in 1906 in Okla., they lived in Tishomingo, Johnson Co., Ok. until 1927 when they moved to Texas. They purchased a 32-acre farm in 1937 and he lived there until his death in 1962. He and Bettie are buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, Dallas, Texas. Benjamin Allen Gaddis married Cordia Raper and they lived in Tishomingo until he died.

I would love to hear from anyone who can help us with our research. The only information on his father was the name, Allen C. (possibly Cornelius) Gaddis. We do have the original marriage certificate of Allen C. Gaddis and Sallie Rogers.
