Address is a clue!
And in a nearly serendipitous find, I have this death certificate for poor William Hoover Dancy who died of whopping cough in May 1910 and is buried in Oakland Cemetery, Dallas, Texas. But the mother is Mabel- not the hard to trace Lillie Mae White I've been tracking. But there it is- the 429 Peabody address. Mabel, his first wife, preceded her young son to her grave. Very soon after his son's passing, E H Dancy marries the 14 year old Lillie Mae White. I noticed about six months ago another researcher already had Mabel- but with no citations. Now its time to reach out and compare notes. She might have had second-hand knowledge.
