Etta Williams was the daughter of Joseph Thomas WILLIAMS b.19Dec1872 in Texas and (Laurena or Lavinia)Elizabeth REEVES b.30Nov1872 in Forney, Kaufman Co.,Texas.

One of my grandmother's brothers was John Watson CHOATE born 31July1896 in or near Douglass, Nacogdoches Co., Texas. On 4Aug1915, he married Miss Etta WILLIAMS b.31Oct1896 in Texas. About 1943, John was living in Kansas City, (Kansas or Missouri).
They had at least the following children:
Billie L.CHOATE, a daughter, born in 1916 or 1917 in Texas.
John Watson CHOATE Jr. born about 1922 in Texas
Audrey F. CHOATE, a daughter, born about 1924 in Texas.

John's father was Jonathan Jackson CHOATE Jr. b.14Oct1860 in Jasper Co.,Texas and his mother was Ella Louvicey (COOK)CHOATE b.2Nov1858 in Sallis, Attala Co., Mississippi.

Does anyone know when or where John Watson CHOATE died, where he is buried, and whether he had any other children?

I am willing to share my photos of John, his parents and ancestors, Etta, his four brothers and their wives, and his three sisters.
