I have now found a James Ernest Gilbreath in the 1930 census which places this Ernest Gilbreath in close proximity to my ggrandmother, Alma Holliday of Floydada. The same family is also in Wood Co. in 1910 and 1920 census. At some point, Ernest moved back to Wood Co. from Floyd Co before 1982.
I am trying to connect with anyone who might remember this Ernest Gilbreath or his family to compare info linking him to my family. Ernest's father died in 1957.
