McCleskey-McClure-West and others

I am researching Rhoda Jane McCleskey/McCluskey, born 3/1884 probably in Paris, Lamar Co., TX, to John Louis McCleskey and Jane West. Jane West died when Rhoda was very young. Family stories indicate that Rhoda lived with a McClure family after that. That McClure family may have been the William G. McClure family, who moved to Rains Co., TX, from Lamar Co., probably before 1890. Rhoda likely married Nicholas Malbury Hoover on 7/23/1899. They were in the 1900 Rains Co., TX, census, and William G. and Mollie McClure were living next door to Rhoda and Nicholas.

The marriage of Rhoda McCluskey and Nicholas Hoover lasted only a year. They separated, and Rhoda moved to Oklahoma, where she married James Jasper Smith about 1904. In Rains Co., Nicholas Hoover was granted an annulment of his marriage to Rhoda in 1905, just before his marriage to Mollie King.

Any information, especially about a McCleskey/McCluskey and McClure connection would be greatly appreciated. My home email is
