It may have been thought that Theodore middle name may have been Henry after his father William Henry,but it was no more than an initial 'H'. his was not given him at his birth, but later in life.It seems that everyone thought that he should have a middle name or initial.Theodore gave this to himself, it is possibility that he may have had Henry in mind, but it is not known. According to the Texas death Index he was shown as Theodore Henry, but remember that this information may have been given by someone who assumed that to be correct. Vivian Vickie Tedford Guynes\
