Looking for any info on William H. Anderson who was born in Kentucky in Oct 1888,parents Jacob & Julia. He moved to Il with his family in 1900. He was in the Livingston, Il 1910 Census with his parents & sisters, then also the Jackson, OK 1910 Census along with his sister Alice & her future husband Jack Bullis. I found his WW1 Draft Registation for 1917(hard to read) in Plainsview, Hale Co., Tx, it lists a wife & 2 children. I believe he & his family are also in the Hale Co. 1920 Census. After that I lost them. He is my great-uncle.

Hope you've friends in New Mexico? That's where they "beamed" down from Texas. View 1920 TX-Hale Plainview-District 100-Image 1 for William H. Anderson(31), Zanda A./Zaida A.(35), Aylmer/Izelma/Zelma(1), Stanley L. Damman/Dunman(14), Mildred O. Damman/Dunman(12), and Husbwell/Hartwell A. Milner(61). Next, 1930 NM-Bernalillo-Albuquerque-District 21-Image 47. For certain Zaida died in New Mexico per SSDI: 1 Mar 1882 - Jul 1973. There's also a death record for Zelma, 12 Mar 1937 and Stanley L. Dunman, 3 Sep 1929.

Thank you for the reply! I have no idea why they went on to NM. His (William) parents & a sister went to Canada, others to the midwest, so I have no idea. I just have the transcribed census not the original, you have better info than I did on them.

You're welcome! Profile indicates you own two public family trees but I failed to locate them. The ones I did find need "help"! Found it, "Delaney Family Tree".

Yes, I have 2 Trees, Delaney (my maiden name) & Rippel. The Rippel is on my in laws side. Again, thank you for your help. William has been one of my problems/brick walls from the time I found out about him. We didn't even know my grandmother had a brother, weird bunch.

I think it's more than happenstance that a KY-male would travel to IL, then OK, and, finally, Hale County, TX to find a bride!(lol) Zaida Milner's roots are in Breckinridge, KY. That's not close to Clay County still I wonder if they were acquainted prior to arrival in Texas? Zaida's father was Hartwell Artemus Milner born ca 1858 in case you want to research.

I will be digging into it. I'm a little confused about how they ended up together. William left Kentucky with his family at age 12. A little young to date.;-) Thanks!
