William "Willie" Walling was born May 7, 1881 and died February 3, 1953. Ida Mae Friou was born May 13, 1883 and died January 28, 1983 in Amarillo, Potter County, Texas. They were married November 4, 1899 in Hill County, Texas.They are buried at Citzens Cemetery in Clarendon, Donley County, Texas.
Willie was known affectionately as "Pappa" to family members while Ida Mae was know as "Mother Goose". Apparently her great-grandson, Dennis Reed, as a child thought she looked like the Mother Goose character from a book and called her by that. The nickname stuck.
I will be posting corrections/updates to this family in separate emails. Regards.
