I have found some info on my Grandfather, James Monroe Tongate.I did find where he is buried. He died Dec. 11, 1986 and is buried in Rosemound Cemetery in Waco, Texas.
I called the county clerks in both Brown and McLennan,Tx and found the marriage license of both marriages. James Monroe Tongate married Ina Mae Blount, May 1, 1922 (his second marriage).
I am still looking for divorce records though. I've called and called the district clerk in Brown county where James Monroe Tongate and Texa Vivian Hester married - they have looked through several years and don't find a thing. I've always thought my Grandmother was divorced, but maybe they never filed, which really complicates things with his marrying a second time.Maybe James Monroe never filed divorce papers, just kept it quiet, forgot about that little fact, didn't want to file divorce papers for wife #1, which might have led them to find he already had married a second wife without legally divorcing the first wife. We've looked through 1920 -1922, but the clerks say they find no record.
