    • At the time of the 1910 Federal census, a woman named Annie Chance was living in Vernon Parish, Louisiana, Township 4 N R 10 W, Ward 2, on Taylor Street. She was listed as Female, White, Age 55, Widowed, and the mother of four children in total, all living. Her place of birth was listed as Texas, with her fathers location of birth listed as Missouri and her mothers location in Mississippi. Her occupation was listed as Honer? Might this be the same woman?

His first marriage was to Melinda Eaves my leinage second marriage to Martha A. Whiddon.. These marriages occured in Shelby County Tx.best I can tell or possibly San Augustine Co..

      I did not know of a middle name.. He had approx 8 to 10 children by Melinda nad I do not know how many by Martha but met a fellow from Silsbee a few years back who was his decendant from 2nd marriage./. He had a daughter that was suppose to contact me but never did..She lived in Nederland I think..
