Am looking for any info on Wade James Abbott who at some time in the 1930's may have been in Henderson. Wade was born Feb. 19, 1901 in Beaumont, Texas. Am looking for names of his parents and siblings and their birth/death dates. Also name of 1st wife and children of that marriage. Wade died Sept. 1966 and is buried in Houston, Texas. Thanks for any help. Martha

I have since found new info on (1) Wade James Abbott (b. Feb. 19, 1901 Beaumont, Tx-died Sept. 22, 1966, Angelina County, Tx. buried in Houston Tx. in Woodlawn Cemetery next to his 2nd wife, Frances Alexander Abbott (July 11, 1926 - August 16, 1999).
Wade's parents were Charles T. Abbit who married Ella Ferris (Farris) Dec. 26, 1899 in Hardin County, Texas.
His parents also had other children--(2) Stella Edna Abbott (Dec. 1, 1901-Jan. 7,1970) Stella married Joseph Beono (March 10, 1893-Feb. 12, 1966) from Italy. Stella & Joe are buried Oakland Cemetery in Dallas, Tx. (3) Florence Elizabeth Abbott born 1904. Florence married Antonio Rossetti from Italy.
Ella died and the children were adopted. I don't know if Charles & Ella had any more children. Wade is adopted by James F. and Lena Annie Maxey in Houston, Tx. Wade is listed as Wade Maxey in 1915. At some point, Wade changed his name back to Abbott.
Stella and Edna may have been adopted together. First they are in Texas together, then both are in NY. By 1940's they are in Dallas, Tx.
Wade Abbott married Emma Mae Wheat. Wade and Emma had 2 sons (1) Marion James Abbott (Dec. 28, 1923 - March 17, 2002)-buried Houston National Cemetery with wife Viola Willis Abbott (Sept. 22, 1929-May 20, 2003) and (2) Melvin Wade Abbott b. July 19, 1926 - d. June 7, 1965 buried Brookside Memorial Park, Houston, Tx. Both Marion and Melvin Abbott were in the AF.
Wade and Emma divorced between 1940-1945. When did they marry and when did they divorce? When & where was Emma born & when and where did she die? What is Charles T. & Ella Abbott's birth & death dates. Charles Abbott remarried--When and to whom and did they have children?

Impressive! Emma Wheat was born ca. 1905/06 in Wood County to Isaac D. Wheat and Lona Lindsey per census records. Where/when she died unknown. She's not even part of the obit attached to her parents' findagrave memorials. The father's buried in Wood and the mom in Franklin County. Parents wed 1 Apr 1900 in Wood County. Emma Wheat married W. J. "Maxey" 5 Nov 1922 in Wood. Their divorce date unknown and both were listed in 1953 City of Houston Directory. Yes, I'm aware Wade and Frances Pearl had children earlier than that date per records. Charles Thomas Abbott (20 Dec 1882 - 15 Nov 1970) death certificate online. His second wife: Clarrissia Cathrine (nee: Crist) Abbott (2 Feb 1886 - Jun 1966). They wed 12 Dec 1909 in Henderson County. Find them/kids same place 1920-1940. I'm not related!

Surnames: ABBOTT, ABBIT, ABBET, FERRIS, FARRIS, WHEAT, THOMASON
Emma Wheat was born to Issac D. Wheat and Lona Lindsey Patterson. They had Willie Wheat, Lula Wheat (March 3, 1903-1982), Emma Wheat, Lavenia Wheat, Lawrence Wheat, Clarence Wheat, Era Wheat b. 1907, Dewey Wheat b. 1909, Johnnie Wheat b. 1911, Roy Wheat, b. 1913, Letha Wheat, Grave Wheat b. 1919. According to others, Issac Wheat made Lona adopt some of the children out so that Lona could care for Issac.. Emma married Wade James Maxey. Wade was born Abbott, but after his mother's death between 1905-1909, Wade was adopted by James and Lena Maxey in Houston. Thus Wade had the name Maxey when he married Emma. James Maxey died in 1936. At some point after that Wade changed his name back to Abbott. Wade and Emma are listed in the 1940 census with their 2 sons, Melvin and Marion living at 413 Marie St in Houston, Texas. Between 1940-1945, Wade and Emma divorced b/c on April 30, 1945 Wade married Frances Pearl Alexander in Houston, Texas. Frances & Wade Abbott are on Find a Grave. They had 1 son, and 2 daughters. Emma later married Walter L. Thomason (Nov. 29, 1902 - March 15, 1961) On Texas Find a Grave it lists Emma Mae Thomason B. March 19, 1904 died July 25, 1979 Houston, Harris County, Tx.

View online death certificate: Mary Ella Wood (4 Jun 1877 - 5 Dec 1948). Born in Dodge, Walker County to Edward P. Farris and Betty Roark? Best option based on geography? No clue how she obtained surname Wood.

STILL TRYING TO FIND INFO ON ELLA FERRIS - WHEN/WHERE BORN, WHEN/WHERE DIED AND NAMES OF PARENTS
THIS IS WHAT I KNOW:
Ella Ferris married Charlie Abbit on December 26, 1899 in Hardin, Texas
When they married, Ella already had 2 sons, Charlie Sweet born Nov. 1895 in Texas and Wilson Sweet born June 1897 in Tx. They are listed as Charlie's stepsons. Ella born March 1877 in Texas and parents born in Louisiana. In 1910, Charlie & Wilson are adopted by 2 different Baggett families in Louisiana.
Charlie Sweet and Wade James Abbott (from Ella and Charlie Abbott's marriage) later reconnect.
Charlie Sweet is living outside Lufkin, Tx and convinces Wade Abbott to buy the farm next to him when Wade retires from the Houston Police Department. Wade buys the property a year or so before his retirement and begins to work on the place. In 1966 Wade and his wife and 2 of his children retire there. On September 22, 1966 Wade dies there. His wife, Frances, stays with the children until the children move to Houston for college and work. Frances keeps the place and comes and goes often until her death in August of 1999. Charlie Sweet is later found in death records as April 18, 1897 - Dec. 1, 1972 age 75 died in Lufkin, Tx. (so what is his correct birth date?)
Charlie Abbott & Ella have these children that I have found (the family only knew of Mae until I found the other two online). (1) Wade James Abbott (Feb. 19, 1901 - Sept. 22, 1966 buried next to Frances in Woodlawn Cemetery in Houston, Tx. On Find A Grave (2) Stella Edna Abbott (Dec. 1, 1901 - Jan 7, 1970) Stella married Joseph Beono from Italy. They had Josephine Beono, John Beono and Ella Beono. They lived in Dallas, then NY and then back to Dallas. Stella and Joe are buried in Oakland Cemetery, Dallas, Tx. (3) Florence Elizabeth Abbott (born February 25, 1905 - May 16, 1984-died in Clearwater, Florida ) Florence married Anthony Rossetti on Dec. 10, 1918 in Harris County, Tx. Florence married at age 14 and had 3 girls and 1 son. Florence & Joe's daughters are Elizabeth & Nancy Rosseti. Florence & Joe lived in Texas, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia and Florida. At one point both Stella and Florence & their husbands lived together in Dallas. Which makes me think they may have been adopted together.
(4) Della Mae Bloom (1902 - 1983) My husband remembers visiting an "Aunt Mae" Bloom who was married to Earl Bloom. They lived in Liddel, Tx. I couldn't find any info on Mae until I came across Della Mae Abbott. Edward Earl Bloom Sr. died in 1970. My husband and his family didn't know about Stella or Florence. There may be more children, I don't know. What I do know is that Ella Abbott died and the children were adopted. Wade James Abbott was adopted by James and Lena Maxey in Houston. Thus Wade used both Maxey and Abbott. Wade changed his name back to Abbott some time after 1936, when James Maxey died. In the 1930 census Wade and his first wife, Emma Wheat and their children are listed as Maxey. In the 1940 census Wade and his family are listed as Abbott. At some point Wade also reconnected with his father, Charlie Abbott. Charlie Abbott remarried on Dec. 12, 1909 to Clarrissa Catherine Crist (Feb. 2, 1886 - June 1966). They had several children all listed in the above messages. Charlie and Cathy are buried next to each other in Patterson Cemetery, Patterson County, Tx. They lived in Malakoff which is 43 miles from Tyler, Tx. This means that Ella died between 1905 and 1909 and I am assuming Tx. but possibly Louisiana. IF ANYONE KNOWS OF THIS FAMILY OR WHEN ELLA FERRIS ABBOTT WAS BORN AND DIED, PLEASE CONTACT ME. MY HUSBAND, KEN ABBOTT, IS THE SON OF WADE ABBOTT AND GRANDSON OF ELLA & CHARLIE ABBOTT. THANKS SO MUCH. MARTHA marthaabbott@comcast.net
