I'm looking for the family of William Thomas Hester b. 2/05/1897 d. 8/23/1973 from Smiley, TX married to Viola Mae Yates on 8/25/1924.
His parents were George Washington Hester II born in Mississippi and married to Willie Olivia Jones 12/23/1891 in Gonzales County. She was from Cuero, TX and died in 1933.
His grandparents were George Washington Hester I who owned a plantation. All I know is that this George left Mississippi when he was 13 yrs. old after the Civil War and his plantation had been burned down and headed for Texas.
