According to the 1920 Midland Co Tx census, William A. Rutland, age 24, b TX, father b MS and mother b in Tx, is shown as being in the county lockup.
I checked the WWI draft registrations for Midland Co and didn't find him, or on the 1910 census.
Does anyone have access to court/jail records from 1920 who might be willing to look up William and see what he was charged with, and any indication where he may have come from before getting into trouble in Midland Co?
A daughter was born in 1929 in Wichita County and by 1930, his wife and daughter are living her parents and Lurlene Rutland is shown as divorced. William is nowhere around.
Any information on William Asa Rutland, b ca 1896, and his parents, would be greatly appreciated. His father was also William Asa and reportedly died from a fall from a horse, but I have nothing on the mother or when the father may have died or where any of these folks may be buried.
Thanks for any assistance
