I am looking for all information that I can find on the SINCLAIR STEP CRADDOCK family, that settled in Coke county in the early 1890's, having moved from McLennan County, Texas. He was supposedly engaged in farming and blacksmithing in Sanco. He moved to Coke County, with his wife and several children, and had more children in Coke County. His first (?) wife, MARY ELIZABETH SCARBOROUGH, died in Coke Co. on Sept. 1, 1897. In found in the Coke county Marriages, where S. S. Craddock had married a MRS. E.E. THURMAN on June 28, 1898, and where he had married an EMMA MERCHANT Aug 17, 1902. From what I have deduced, Mary Elizabeth Scarborough Craddock must have died from complications of Childbirth with JAMES MARVIN CRADDOCK, who was born Aug 27, 1897. I have found that a RUFUS ORBA CRADDOCK was born May 4, 1899, with Mary Elizabeth Scarborough Craddock listed as his mother...but since she was dead, I suspect that the Mrs. E. E. Thurman that he married in 1898 was probably Rufus Orba's mother...but I need documentation of that. I also have found reference to Sinclair Step's wife being called EMMA ELIZABETH WHITESIDE...Who knows whether she is Emma Merchant, or Mrs. E. E. Thurman?

Of his children that I have found reference to marrying in Coke Co, are: Donah Anna Craddock m. Charles W. Wulfjen (or Wufjen), Thomas William Craddock m. Mary Hannah (Daisy) Perry, Jesse Sinclair Craddock m. Lela Adeline Morrow in Tom Green Co.,Lottie Lavenia Craddock m. James Arthur Ulmer in Coke Co.

I would appreciate any help locating this family!

Here is a name only, 3 generation descendant report of Sinclair Step Craddock, who lived in Coke Co., Texas. I do have dates & places for many.

If anyone has contact with any descendants of Sinclair Step, I'd love to hear from them.

-------------------
One interesting thing I found on the 1910 Coke Co. Census:

Sinclair Step was listed as a widow, age 59, with his children Jessie, Lavenia and Orbie living at home with him.

Emma Craddock was listed also as a widow, age 46, who bore one child, none living, and was a school teacher living with her mother Martha Ann Merchant.

She and Sinclair must have divorced after Roy S. was born and died in 1904... I wonder if she married someone else after that, and was a widow, but was listed as a Craddock on the census... or I wonder if she considered herself what I have heard referred to as a "grass" widow.... which I have been told was a term used to refer to a divorced person? Does anyone have any ideas on that one?

The Emma Merchant that married S S Craddick only had one child with him and it did not live, so I feel sure the Emma Elizabeth you referred to was not Emma Merchant.

Emma Merchant was a schoolteacher and was living with her Mother, Martha Merchant in Coke County.
