Given name of my grandfather STRANGE of Texas.

The given name of my grandfather Strange is unknown to me and immediate family.
Mr. Strange married my grandmother, Ollie Bickham (Maude Olive) about 1913 presumably in Texas, possibly Dallas. One child was produced, Marvin Strange (my father), born 15 March 1914 in Texas, possibly Dallas. The 1920 US census indicates his biological father was born in Texas. This marriage ended before 1920 and Ollie married Bert J. Jones in Texas. Marvin Strange was subsequently adopted and became known as Marvin S. Jones (d 14 Sep 1980).
Ollie Bickham (b 3 Oct. 1897 LA d 12 Jul 1971) was the daughter of George H. Bickham (b 5 Aug 1873 MS d 24 Apr 1942?) and Vanda Magee (b 21 Feb 1876 LA d 10 Nov 1901) and is listed in the household of George H. Bickham in the 1913 Dallas City Directory. I have not found her in the later Dallas directories until she and Marvin appear in the US Census of 1920 in Dallas as the wife of Bert J. Jones.
I would appreciate information about my grandfather Strange. Short of that, suggestions about how to research the birth and adoption of my father, Marvin could lead me to the information.
