The elusive Willie Novak, (husband of Ella Vacek)

Surnames: Novak, Vacek, Barta
On 1 Feb 1927, Willie Novak married Ella Vacek in Fort Bend County, Texas. I've attached the wedding license. He is my great grandfather and a major stumbling block in my genealogical research. In some later legal documents, he is referenced as Will.

My grandmother is one of his four daughters (Olga, Della, Sophie and Marie). They lived on a farm, and at least part of that was with Ella's mother (Frantiska Barta Vacek).

I'm told that Willie operated a bus service of some kind for a while in Fort Bend County, but I have yet to find any records of its existence. My grandmother believes her parents divorced, but I cannot find those records, either.

I would greatly appreciate any info on Willie and his origin (parents, birth place, etc.).
