States: Texas: Milam
This is quite a late response, but I thought I'd check with you about this possibility for Leroy R. Dockery. In researching the Wheeler family, there was a marriage between Alice Wheeler and George F. Dockery who had a son named Leroy R. Dockery born Oct 1879. This Leroy had a brother named Ola born about 1892. They were in Milam Co. in the 1880 census, and Leroy was in Nolan Co. by 1900 (I never found George and Alice in 1900) and George had died by 1910 but Alice was in Jones Co. with Ola.
I don't know much more about George F. Dockery, but in 1880 he was living next door to Lee Dockery who would be about the right age for George's father, but I haven't investigated that. Alice Wheeler's sister, Georgia, married Jeff L. Dockery. I have no further information on him either, but I've always suspected George and Jeff were brothers--in 1910 Jeff and Georgia Dockery are living two houses from Alice in Jones Co.
