Has anyone come across a HEFNER who had a child by the name of Prince E., Thelbert, Jake(s).....possibly with the last name of BANKS.This would be in TX after 1910 to early 1920's (maybe later).
My mother's mother and her two brothers were given up by their mother, after their father had died in 1910 Kaufman Co., TX.Their mother's name was Annie PENDERGRASS.After her husband BANKS had passed away, she married a KINES.Annie PENDERGRASS was also linked to the STRIPLIN/STRICKLIN line.
But, when she remarried, she gave her three BANKS children to three different families.
Winnie....was given to the BOLES/BOWLES
Archie Roland (Bill)....ran away from his new family and returned to his mother until he was allowed to stay.
Prince E. (Thelbert, Jake(s))...was given to the HEFNER family (as best mother could remember before she passed away).He married (Alice Margaret JAMES)in Hopkins Co., lived part of his adult life in Sulfer Springs, and was buried in Sulfer Springs, Hopkins Co., TX.He also lived in Dallas for some time.
I mentioned all these surnames because I recently found out that Striplin/Stricklin (which is connected to PENDERGRASS) is connected to the BOLES/BOWLES line.And, there might be a chance that HEFNER also may be connected to one of the surnames, I have mentioned.
If anyone should come across Prince/Thelbert/Jake(s) (possibly BANKS...may have gone by HEFNER)living in a Hefner household, please remember me.Would love to have the information to add to my data base.
