Hollins Family (African American)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Hollins, Johnson, Shanks
Hi, I'm looking for information about relatives of my great grandfather's family. My grandfather, Cordell Herbert Hollins (1908-1974) was born in Bastrop County, TX to Ed Hollins and Lydia (maiden name Johnson). Ed and Lydia divorced between 1920-1930. Lydia remarries a man by the name of William Walter Shanks in the early 1940s. Ed eventually ends up in San Antonio, Bexar County, TX where he died 24 Oct 1943. His death certificate was filed by his ex-wife's sister so there is a lot of info missing. It states that Ed was born in TX on 15 Aug 1892 and that his father's name was Jack Hollins (born in TX). No name for mother listed. Ed may or may not have remarried but when he died he was listed as divorced. So far I have been unable to find any records or info on Ed's parents nor can I find a census record of this family before 1910 (Ed was already married by then). Does anyone have these names in their tree? I'd love to connect with any relatives from the Hollins family. Message me on Ancestry or email me at keebzcooper (at) yahoo.com . Thanks!
