Not my family and I don't have access to city directories for Houston, but did find the following on census records.

1900 census Whitfield Co, GA:

Tarver, John, h, b Feb 1844, 56, md 33 yrs, b GA, GA, GA
" Hattie, w, b Jun 1841, 58, md 33 yrs, 1 ch, 0 lvg, b AL, GA, GA
Stringfield, Jimmie, sister, b May 1854, "S", b GA, GA, GA

Now Jimmie is either widowed or divorced, she is listed as single, makes one think she might have been divorced, as that was an embarrassment in those days.

1910 census Childress Co, TX:

Stringfield, J.T., boarder, 55, wid, 1 ch, 0 lvg, b GA, GA, GA

1920 census Fannin Co, TX:

Smith, O.A., hd, 43, wid (male), b VA, VA, VA
" Noda, d, 11, b TX, VA, KY
" Anna, d, 7, b TX
Stringfield, Jimmie, Aunt, 61, wid, b GA, GA, GA
