I have a James D. Tankersley born ca 1870 in Eastland Co. Tx... Married ca 1890 in ? to a Celia Lee Pierce..
One of his son's was Kimble Edward Tankersley. I know Kimble spent some time on the New Mexico/Texas border -- Chaves Co., NM and Yoakum Co., TX... This is the area that he may have met his wife Ethel Ella Willingham. Kimble and his family ended up in Maricopa County, AZ...
Could my James D. be Martin Walker Tankersley's son? I have the 1880 census for Eastland Co... there are two Pierce families living in the County, each with a daughter about the right age.. a C. A. Pierce age 9, and a Clara
Pierce age 5... since microfilm is hard to read and this is a transcribed copy that I have.. I have not looked this up myself.. I am adding the Clara just in case... Did any other later Eastland Co. Tankersley's marry Pierce's??
Thank you for any consideration of this...!
