Surnames: Cryer, Lawson

I am not related.

Requirement of recording births and deaths in Texas began in 1903 but was not widely enforced.

Many early births are listed as "infant of" and gives the name of the father and not the child. Such is the case for my own father born in 1926.

Using the data base from you will also need to put surname of father in place of the mother's name, do not use a first name, select a county, for some of these early births.

I find Dalko Cryer in the 1930 census in Coke county. Most of the 1890 census burned in 1921.

Thomas Cryer, appx 17 yrs old in 1910, was not found in the 1910 census and can not explain why his father listed as James in one record. Sisters "Lizzie" and Bessie Cryer are married by 1910. Elon Ralph Cryer, brother, has moved out also. One child appears to have died in childhood.

Annie Cryer & Paul Wright:
Dorthy Marie Wright 20 Apr 1932 Coke

I find Paul Wright in Montague county in 1930 record whose wife was listed as Frankie A born about 1901 TX, father TX, mother AR. Paul was born abt 1890 in New Mexico, was a tool driver in the oil field. Frankie said she was 19 when she married. Mary L born abt 1922, Eula F 1924, Pauline A 1926 and Robert Wayne 1927. Paul's father from TX and mother MO.

Paul and Frankie Wright are residing next to Elon Ralph Cryer who married when he was 19? to Helen E born about 1899 in NM, father TX, mother MO and was possibly sister to Paul Wright. Myrtle born abt 1920 TX, Agnes 1923 TX and Ettie P 1928. Elon was working in the oil field and I think he was also listed as Ralph Cryer in Cooke county in 1930. Helen Cryer said she also married when she was 19.
