Howdy cousin!! LOL

I just asked Bill about the family moving to Maryland. Here is the story as he knows it. Carl Lee was injured during his military time and recouperated at the VA hospital in Maryland (we have military documents to support this). He obtained a job (mental health asylum as he remembers but we are looking into this) after discharge, and the family (with exception of Flossie and William - who died in 1925) moved there so he could support them. As Carl was the only male child it was up to him to provide support for his mother and sisters which he had been doing while in the military. They eventually all ended up in Nanjemory, Charles County, Maryland. Carl was married two times - Margaret Finley, divorced her then married Eleanor Vaccaro. Carl died in Maryland. My husband is the son of Carl and Eleanor.
Cordie Lewellen-Rodgers died in Maryland. Bill remembers her as a child.
William Lee died in 1925 of Typhoid Fever in Texas.
Flossie Irene remained in Texas, marrying Jace Jackson Cromer in 1935. They had no children. Bill spent about 6 years there as a small child living with them and remembers them well (about 1962-1968 before being sent back to his parents in Maryland). After Jace died, she relocated to Maryland to be with this family in some fashion. Not sure if she lived with a sibling or not.
Ida Florine married John Louis Gilroy in Maryland and died there.
Zella Fay married Maynard Mitchell Gilroy (brother of John Louis Gilroy) in Maryland and died there.
Florence married first a Henderson and then a Johnson. She died in Maryland.

If you have access to ancestry - I have it all there.
