Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Enter Tidwell, David, spouse Ollie Collier. Someone has much more on the family. Nannie's siblings, and on back, too.

On Find a Grave you can see photo of the double headstone for Henry and Nannie. Also buried there is a Pvt David Tidwell 1846-1923, wonder if he's the father of Nannie??? D.K. Tidwell, father-in-law, is living with Henry and Nannie and their family on the 1920 Kaufman Co, TX census.
