Malcolm Mooney and Augusta Mae Williams
My grandmother died in childbirth with my dad, JL Byas, in 1929. She married my grandfather, Clyde E. Byas, in April of 1920. Her sister Sina had told my mother and father that my grandmother (Augusta Mae Williams, daughter to John William Williams and Elizabeth Catherine Rice) had been married before, so it was not any shock to me when I found their birth certificatein Montague County, Texas, and she was Augusta Mooney, not Augusta Williams. For some reason, I think the name I heard was Malcolm Mooney, but I don't know. I have been unable to find a Malcolm Mooney who is a good candidate to have been my grandmother's first husband. In fact, I don't know if he died, or if they were divorced. I have looked and been unable to locate a divorce decree or any death notice for anyone named Mooney who is a good candidate for her first husband. Need help.
