With this information you can check against census records for children of the above. For example on the 1930 census Jesse has sons Hamlin and Norman. Then check the other TX Dth Idx (without digitized records) but runs to later years and find Norman died 1986 in Ector Co, TX and Hamlin in Tom Green Co, TX in 1978. Then look for their obits, survivors are usually listed and you might find living members of those families.
