This is what I was able to find. Their names and ages seem to change from year to year so I can't be 100% sure but it looks like they all tie into the same families...Linda

DEATH CERTIFICATE FOR ROY LEE HENDRICKSON
Roy Lee Hendrickson born 24 Jul 1871 in Tennessee died 01 May 1945 in Kilgore, Gregg, Tx. at the age of 73y 9m 8days. He lived in Kilgore for 11yrs. He was married when he died but spouses name was not on death certificate. Roy's father was ABRAHAM HENDRICKSON and his mother was REBECCA DAVIS per informant W.C. Hendrickson from Gladewater, Gregg, Tx.
DEATH CERTIFICATE FOR MELETHA C HENDRICKSON
The widow Meletha C Hendrickson born 5 May 1879 died 25 May 1963 in Gladewater, Gregg, Texas. Her fathers name was HENRY ALLEN and her mothers name was ANNA PHILLIPS per informant Lucy McNair (daughter) on death certificate. Cause of death - Cerebral Hemmorhage. Meletha was buried in Kilgore City Cemetery in Kilgore, Tx.
I don't understand why Roy's death certificate says his mothers name is Rebecca Davis unless his father remarried or Roy was born out of wedlock or the informant didn't know Roy's mothers name or I just have the wrong family.
But if you look at the 1900 Census for Justice, Grayson, Texas, you see that Leeroy and Abraham live right next door to each other.
What do make of all this? Linda
