Thanks for the responses. William Edward Weeks (Birth 7/3/1875 in Pierce City, MO) (Death 04/9/1929 in Delta County TX) married 01/28/1905 in Cooper TX to Maude Ellen Dancer (Birth 1/19/1887 in Klondike, TX)(Death4/20/1964 in Dallas TX) her father Samuel D Dancer 1836-1901 and mother Louisa Fields 1870-1935. William and Maude had 7 children (Effie Louella Weeks, Mollie Weeks, Zella Lee Weeks, Blanche Dorothy Weeks, Leatrice Weeks, Mary Ellen Weeks and Clarence Edward Weeks.

My grandmother name was Ora Leatrice Weeks(Birth 10/18/1916 in Hunt County, TX)(Death 1/13/1984 in Dallas, TX).

I can get some information on Maude Ellen Dancer, but can't seem to find much on William Edward Weeks, my father grandfather. I would love to find out as much as I can to help him trace down some of his background before he passes away. My father is Garland Edward Parish(Birth 4/27/1936 in Wolfe City, TX or maybe Liberty, TX. He was raise without a father, so we are just wondering some of his family ancestors. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks that tells me more about my GGgrandfather, can you see what research you can find about my father Garland Edward Parish(born 4/27/1936)and still alive,his mother is Leatrice Weeks. Any way of finding anything about his father, all I know his name is suspose to be Foster Llue Parish around Hunt County, TX. He was not a part of my dad life. My dad has a bother name Franklin Glenn Parish (born 02/14/1934 in Hunt county, TX. I really appreciate the help on research.

Yes that is my dad brother. I couldn't find one about my dad. He was born in the same area and suppose to have the same father. But I haven't any luck after this point.
