Looking for Bunn of Texas and Alabama:Norris of Texas:Wallace of Texas: Fricke of Texas/Germany

My family history starts with Etheldred Bunn from Northampton Co., NC who married Sarah Sykes and had a son, Henry (blind Henry) born in 1793 in same co. They also had 3 daughters. "Blind Henry" married Elizabeth Smith and they had 2 sons, Wiley and Green. That wife died and he married Cynthia Stout and they had 5 more children, 3 daughters and 2 sons. One son, Henry was born 2/14/1838. He married Cincinnati Huffman Yant 5/10/1858 in Lincoln Co., TN and had 10 children, 5 sons and 5 daughters. One of these sons, Travis Ashby Bunn was my greatgrandfather. He married Ola Winona and they had 4 daughters and 3 sons. One of his sons, Henry Dee Bunn was born June 10, 1908 in Laredo, Texas I think. Henry Dee married Madelyn Ward and they had 2 daughters, one of whom was my mother, Clara Dee Bunn.

I am also looking for any information of my Dad's side which is Norris. My first records are John G. Norris, born 1829 or 30. He had 4 children, one son born in TN and the next 3 born in TX. The son, Robert Lee was born on 1/13/1851 and he joined the Texas Rangers on 5/16/1874. He married Mary Mills and they had 7 children: Mattie, Sallie, Ellie Mae, Robert Frank, John Henry (my greatgrandfather), Lewis, and Richard. John Henry married Maude McDaniel and they had 8 children: Della, Henry,Virgil, Lena, Lenard, Raymond, Hubert Lee, and Dorothy.

All I know of my Wallace family is that my grandmother, who was named Maggie Lee Wallace had 11 brothers and sisters: Jim, who lived in Bruni, Texas, Cora , Smith, Lucy, Kitten, Alec, Tom, who lived in Premont, TX and had 2 sons: Miles and Kenneth, Minor who lived in the Fort Worth area most of his life and had a son, Ronnie and a daughter, Monette, Pete, Dora and Brandon. The Fricke family is my husband's family. I probably know even less about them. His grandfather was Fred Fricke who married Eugenia Vogelsang and they had 4 sons and one daughter. The sons were Clinton, Warren, Fred Jr. and Lee Roy (who was my father-in-law). The daughter was Annie Louise Fricke Banik, she resides in Round Top, Texas now and will soon be 91.
