Hello, I too am at a brickwall searching for my Addison past.My great grandmother was Etta Lee Addison, born 1888 in Texas, she died in Texas in 1974.Her father was Henry Leonard Addison, born abt 1855 in Missouri.Her mother was Cora Goodwin or Goodman.She had one brother, William Edgar or Edward Addison, born 1882 in Texas and died in 1971 in Texas.
I do not know where or when her mother or father died.I believe her mother may have died shortly after her birth as the 1900 Census in Texas lists Henry with his wife, Alice? and indicates they had only been married for a year.This census also included Etta and William.
On the 1900 Census it indicates Henry Leonard Addison was born in Missouri and both his father and mother in Tennessee.It also indicates Etta and William's father was born in Missouri and their mother in Missouri.
I do not know if this is the same line or not but would enjoy trying to figure it out with you.Thanks, Teresa
