I am looking for information about Willie Dedear who lived in Thomaston, Texas during the 1900's. He died in 1959 at the age of 77. He, or at least his father, was from Alsace-Lorraine, France.

Depending on what you have, I can probably get some basic info for you. I'm a distant cousin with quite a bit of genealogy data, though probably not very much specifically on Willie (I don't have my files here). But email me directly: dege@heronbooks.com. I'm looking for contacts from all the various strands of the family. My intention is to eventually get out an updated family book with high-quality photos, documents, stories, etc. I'll be happy to send you a CD of selected photos and family files in exchange for whatever you have.

William Madison Dedear is listed in the Victoria Co., TX 1900 Census, and the De Witt Co., TX 1920 & 1930 Censuses. His wife's name was Katie. I don't know her maiden name.

They had at least 4 children: Edna Lee (1902-1995) m Ferdinand L Gisler, Hilda (b abt 1905), Luella (b abt 1907) m W R Griggs, and Albert (b abt 1910).

Edna had children in Victoria Co., TX and Luella had children in Lavaca Co., TX.

I am not a relative. I have compiled a database that I call Texas Crossroads Genealogy, and I mess in everyone's family history!

I'm sorry I cannot give you anything in the way of geneology of "Uncle Willie". I lived about a mile north of Thomaston until 1963. I remember my Dad (Sidney Jacob DeDear), his uncle (Fred DeDear of Cuero), Uncle Conrad DeDear, and Uncle Willie would play dominos every Saturday night. My Dad used to come home and say something like Uncle Freddy and I won....160 to 140 (games). Those men loved to play dominos!!!
I remember Uncle Willie be a small man. I guess I was 10 or 11 when I was as tall as he was. The one thing that stands out in my mind about him was that one time he carved a monkey out of a peach seed. I thought that was the neatest thing I had ever seen! Unfortunatly over the years it has disappeared. If I only knew then what I know now....when you are 13, 14, 15 you only care about yourself. When you get into your 60's, you wish you would have paid a lot more attention to everything that went on during your childhood.

By the way, I really like the little peach seed monkey.

I am looking for any information on Dedear. I am related to John Dedear originally from Texas. I have a few other names, but I believe the family was from France.
