If Wm J Cunningham was a Dep. Sheriff in Clay, Texas there should be record of it? Henrietta is a city in and the county seat of Clay County, Texas. Look for obit., cemetery, and death certificate. His death certificate should list parents, mother's maiden name, wife's maiden name, and cemetery. His wife is probably buried by him, her headstone will give death date so you can find her death certificate too. Newspapers are archived on microfilm
