J W Weddle husband of Nancy J. Collins Petty
I'm trying to find more information about J. W. Weddle who was the father of my husband's mother, Myrtle Edna Weddle, born in 1896 in Texas, probably in Montague County.I have searched for years for any information on the man she said was her father.However she gave his name as Wesley Callahan Weddle.She had no memory of her father.She was quite young when her mother died and was taken to live by her uncle G. W. Collins and his family, of Nocona, Montague, Texas.
The 1900 Census lists Myrtle, with her mother, a step father and her teenage brother.The record indicates that her father was born in Missouri.
Only Recently I have found a marriage record for her mother and father.His name was listed as J. W. Weddle.It is possible that his name was J____ Wesley Weddle.They were married 29 September 1895, in Montague County, Texas.I have never been able to find him on a census record.I believe he died not long after they were married, but have found no death record for him.
I have been unable to get a verification of death record from the State of Texas for Nancy Jane Collins based on the information I had. I found marriage records for her marriage to J W Weddle, and her later marriage to W E Wall, and asked for a broader search, but have heard nothing further from the State of Texas.
I would appreciate very much hearing from anyone who may know more about J W Weddle.
