Looking at your message history I see when I suggested you add some dates etc to your Tucker post you never replied. Hope I didn't make you mad. But, Paul is right, we need more to work on.

Even though you didn't give any dates for the less common name of W.A. I saw his son was born 1899, so I did the research for you. On the 1900 census Cooke Co, TX, I found him, Rosalie and first son. With his age and birth location from that census I found his D.C. This gives you his middle name, too.
