Emil, just a theory.
I think Robt Paris may be the s/o Wm Gideon PRATER/Ida CHEEK[1879-1978 d/o Marcus CHEEK/Venia LUTHER].
Throughout all the census, they have 2 daus, Fannie & Sadie, but yet in Ida's obit, it states she was predeceased by her husband and a son.
May I ask why this is important? He was just a baby.

Geo PRATER m. Mattie Pearl VINSON 11-5-1902, Mc Lennan Co TX [d/o Wm VINSON/Georgia STEPP. They have son, Robt Grady.
And as you've seen on findagrave, their father, Robt J PRATER m. Amanda MARTIN, prob in Hall Co GA [Gainesville]
Robt states on all census his father b Georgia, but on the census for Wm PRATER, Hall Co GA, he was b SC

Of course Robt J had other sons who might be f/o Robt Paris. There are several male PRATERs who m 1900-1908 Johnson Co TX on

I know you like rounding up all the PRATERs :-)....
