I've hit a wall and am requesting additional assistance, so if anyone has thoughts, comments, off-the-wall suggestions - they are all appreciated.
William L Rodgers/Rogers, born 3/26/1883 in Bell County Texas.
I've located and have a copy of his death certificate on 11/18/1925. Died of Typhoid Fever. Unfortunately his death certificate lists the father as Unknown Rodgers and his mother as Unknown. But.... never fear - I found him on a 1920 census living in Texas with wife Cordie/Cordia and three of his four children (Carl Lee wasn't born till 1921). The other three children are Flossie Irene, Ida Florine, Zella Fay, and Florence. It also stated that his father was born in Alabama and mother born in Texas.
So here is where I am stuck. With no father's name - I was hoping that someone researching the Rodgers/Rogers family recognizes my William L's name or that one of his daughter's was given a family name that may connect with another branch.
Anyone with any inkling of thought, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm a digger and not afraid of some good old fashion research.
