I am trying to trace my Weathers line. The info I have is that Frederick Lester Weathers(sometimes mispelled as Withers) and his wife Nancy Susan Purvines(Purviance) left Leasburg, MO in 1900 with my two year old grandfather Francis Lester Weathers to come to Texas for work in the oil fields. My dad says they settled in Beaumont for a time, before they moved on to Seattle and then CA. Supposedly, my grandfather had a brother born in 1900 or 1901 who was named Clarence, and a sister Violet later and then a brother Fred. I am hoping that there might be some birth record for Clarence or Violet early in the 1900's in Beaumont. The trail is so sketchy for my Weathers line (probably scamps every one(G))
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
