I am looking for the family of Willa Edna Richardson born 1892 and died 1972 in Sierra County. She married George Thomas Meyers and they are both buried in Hillsboro Community Cemetery in Sierra County. They had at least one daughter based on the following census info:
1930 Census for Sierra County New Mexico, Hillsboro, Precint 2, Page 1A, Household 17:
George T. Meyers Head Owns home worth $550, has a radio and does not live on a farm Age 42 and married at age 24 Can read and write Father born in Germany and Mother born in Texas Working as a census enumerator Not a veteran
Willie E. Wife Age 37 and married at age 20 Can read and write Father born in Kentucky and Mother born in Texas
Erma N. Daughter Age 7 Attended school within past year
All household members were born in New Mexico.

I am actually to find the father of Willa/Willie and the date of death for George's brother Charles Meyers born 1883 in Texas.

I believe Willa was a half sister to Mary Lyons who was the postmistress in Cutter from 1925 until her retirement in
1943. Any info on the Meyers, Lyons, or Ricardson families of Sierra county would help me sort them out.
