My original posting requested the complete name of my biological grandfather whose given name was thought to be Strange. Thanks to guidance from forum replies, I checked the Dallas County marriage records and found the marriage of my grandmother, M. O. Bickham to M. S. Morgan on 5 June 1913. Subsequently, I found his WW I draft registration and war service and learned a more complete name as Marvin S. Morgan. Whether S. is Strange or Strainge is uncertain to me at this point. Some unsourced family trees have him as Strainge. I later found the birth of my father in the Texas Birth Index as Mareice S. Morgan in Dallas 15 March 1914. My grandmother divorced Mr. Morgan sometime between 1916-20 and married Bert J. Jones who adopted Marvin S. Morgan as Marvin S. Jones. Only need a few more sources to complete this data.
Next I want to determine the ancestry of my great grandfather, William Crawford Fowler (3 March 1852-29 November 1893) who lived in Caddo Parish Louisiana. More details in a separate posting to follow.
Thanks again for your interest
