My G Grandmother was ALKA DEE CARTER married Willie Fritz. They lived in the Bell Co. or Coryell Co. area in 1900 when they got married. "Story is" that he met her at a carnival show that was in town at the time and that she was traveling with them. He was smitten and they got married. She was born 3/23/1986 and died 2/1963 in CA.
I have no names of parents. She was 15 and he was 16.
No children of such recall any particular visitors
or talk of her family. Due to other past "family stories" I am hesitant to believe this one and hoping she belonged to a family in a nearby county or such. One of her sons did recall a few years back (at the age of 92 that her father might have been Oscar Carter but others say that was someone with the carnival and that no "father" had claimed her. So maybe family in area had a missing girl.
Hope someone out there knows something.
