Working on a Smith family in Fannin Co. Opal L. Smith b. 23 Aug 1907 Fannin,Tx. and d. 17 Feb 1944 Jefferson,Tx married 1st abt 1925 to Thomas James Payne b. 1896/1902 Pa. an d. 16 Apr 1947 Galveston,Tx. Seems he died in an explosion in Texas City,Tx. Thomas and Opal Payne are in the 1930 Bonham,Fannin,Tx census with two children Frank,Frank Owens Payne b. 2 Sep 1927 Fannin d. 12 May 1986 Dallas, and Ruth, Claudia Ruth Payne b. 18 Mar 1930 Fannin d. 30 May 2002 Dallas. Then in 1940 Opal (Smith) is the wife of Robert Lee Huett/Hewitt b. 29 Dec 1891 Tx d. 8 Dec 1952 GraysonTx. With Robert and Opal are Huett children Frank 12, Claudia 10, Mariam 6, and Jane 4. So my problem, Mariam and Jane!!! I have tried every combination I can think of to figure out if they are Payne or Hewitt children to no avail. Only thing I can think of is maybe Opal married between husband and had two children. Any help with Mariam and Jane greatly appreciated. Thanks Barbara
