Henry Clay Hansard is listed as a "foundling" on the 1920 Census in Grayson Co., TX. He is living with Thomas Lawson Gaines Hansard and his 3rd wife, Alice R. Lovell. As far as I know Alice didn't marry till late in life and didn't have any children of her own. All of T.L.G. Hansard's children were by his 1st wife (Nancy Stover). (#2 was Mary R. Fetsch). Interestingly enough, T.L.G. Hansard had a cousin named Henry Clay Hansard (b.1843).
Henry Clay is listed as age 15 in 1920 but your dates say he was born in Dec 1901.
By 1930 T.L.G. was dead and Alice was living with 2 siblings in Grayson Co., TX : Her sister Addie Caylor (a widow) age 70 and her brother James Lovell(single) age 72. This family is driving me crazy too. I can't find James in any previous Census except perhaps 1880 in KY and I'm not sure it's him. I can't find Addie Caylor either. I find a William Caylor in 1920 in Grayson Co., TX but his wife's name is different and age different. I'm wondering if his wife died, he married Addie, and then he died before 1930. I can't even find Alice anywhere before 1920. The 1930 Census shows all 3 of them born in KY. This is posted on Ancestry (but no Census backup provided) and may be the family I'm looking for:
