CROMEENES/CROMEANS and SEBER/SEIBER...???

I am looking for information on my GG-Aunt, her husband, chn and grandchildren etc.
Her maiden name was Frances Louise [Seiber/Seber] and she was born 12 Jan 1873 in Manchester, Clay Co, Ky. By 1889 her family was in Independance Co Ark and by 1900 census they were in Waller Co Tex.
She was the daughter of Jordan S. Seiber/Seber and Amanda Jane [Smith] who married 21 Jul 1864 in Clay Co Ky.
I have an unverified record that Aunt Frances married a John Walter Cromeans 23 Jan 1894 (probably in Ark or Tex.)
She is named as a "surviving sister Mrs J W Cromeenes of Los Angeles, California" in the 29 Dec 1932 (Harris Co Tx) obituary of her brother John Edward Seber and in the 31 Aug 1933 (Harris Co Tx) obituary of her brother Thomas Jefferson Seber.
I do not know when Aunt Frances moved to Calif or when/if she returned to Texas.....??? However, I've searched the Calif death records under different spellings and do not find any name that even resembles Aunt Frances' or her husband John Walter Cromeenes/Cromeens/Cromeans, etc.
Perhaps there is a clue in this old message board posting?

"Would you possibly have any connection to the family of Robert L. Cromeenes who lived in Waller and Brazoria counties in Texas?"
Then I found:
*1920 Waller Co Tx/ED 132/Prec 5/HH 2-2/pg 28a:
Cromeenes, A L/HH/wf age 53 Ky/Ky/Ky/widow
Bryant, Lizzie/sister/wf age 55 Ky/Ky/Ky-widow

*1920 Waller Co Tx/ED 132/Prec 5/HH 23-24/pg 28b:
Cromeenes, R L/HH/wm age 42/Ky/Ky/Ky
Cromeenes, Minnie/wife/wf age 25 Tx/Tx/Tx
Cromeenes, James E/son/wm age 0_/Tx/Ky/Tx
Cromeenes, Luther L/son/wm age 8mos Tx/Ky/Tx

If you can share anything on any of the above named persons, I would deeply appreciate it and share in return!!!
