Hi Dianne,

In looking for the Willson/Wilson boys I found the below. I noticed that a couple of visits away were Cravens. It just struck me because of Bertha's married name. I wasn't sure if it was really your John. But after finding what I found, I believe it is.

1910, Texas, Parker Co., Precinct 3

VISIT# 213:
William T. Craven (head) 47 GA>GA>GA Farmer/General Farm
1st marriage/26 years, Owns Farm/Mortgaged

In 1920, John, Maudie & family are still in Parker Co., Precinct 3, 2 more children are added. Wilbur 8 & Etha 5.
In 1930, they are in the same location. Household is L.J., Maudie & Etha.

Craven/TX/old item found

of 1484
I have an old deed dated 1924 for a V.P. & Retha Craven of Parker Co, Texas.
If you would like more information about this item, please visit my homepage and fill out the request form. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
From Here To Eternity

There's a very good possibility that the below is your John. I would get a copy of his SS application. The cost is $27.00. It will show parental info, including his mother's maiden name. This would be a more accurate source of info than a death certificate, as John filled it out himself.
Birth Date: 7 Feb 1883
Death Date: Jun 1972
Social Security Number: 463-60-8989
State or Territory Where Number Was Issued: Texas
Death Residence Localities
ZIP Code: 76086
Localities: Weatherford, Parker, Texas

The reason I think the above is him, is because I found this:
Birth Date: 22 Jun 1885
Death Date: Oct 1986
Social Security Number: 463-60-8990
State or Territory Where Number Was Issued: Texas
Death Residence Localities
ZIP Code: 76086
Localities: Weatherford, Parker, Texas

Site for ordering:

If you do get a copy, would you mind letting me know how it turns out? I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!
