I thought I would look and see if there was an obituary for T. F. MERCER. I found one for a Thomas Franklin MERCER, the only thing was that he did not die until 1951. So I looked T. F. and Addie MERCER up on the 1900 census, they were in Limestone County. Tom F. MERCER, 33, born in Texas; wife: Addie, children: (looked like) Ernest (9), Elbert (7), Olive (6), Curtis (3). In the 1910 census for Callahan County was Thomas F. MERCER, 43, born in Texas, wife: Ella, children: Ernest (20), Ollie (16), Curtis (14), Effie (10), Altha (6), Velma (3) and two step children.
The 1920 census found Tom F. and Ella in Comanche County.
The obit I found: The Baird Star May 4, 1951
