Notes for Dicie Ann Elizabeth Bryce:|
Aunt Lula and Uncle Mark took Grandma once to live with them for awhile. It turned out to be a short while however. They drove up into the yard after a couple of weeks with her and left her setting in the yard on her feather bed, as they drove off. It would seem that nobody, with the exception of Carry, Theodore's wife, could put up with her. It would seem that in her eyes the only people of importance were her own children, that is of course her four sons. As for the daughters in law, there were just none good enough for her sons. There isn't much known about Emma, Dicie's daughter, and how she may have felt about her.
" Funeral services were conducted yesterday for Mrs. Dicie A. Tedford, 86, who died Monday night at the home here of her son, Theodore Tedford, following an illness of several weeks.
Dr. E. A. Reed, paster of the Plainview Methodist Church, officiated in services held at 4 o'clock at the Roy Wood Funeral Chaple.
Mrs. Tedford came here two years ago from Oklahoma to make her home with her son. Three other sons and a daughter survive. She had been a member of the Methodist church since girlhood.
Pallbearers were Otis Day, Johnny Day, James Guynes, Monroe Wood, Willard Tedford and Enoch Tedford, both grandsons. Interment was in the Plainview Cemetery under direction of the Roy Wood Funeral Home."
On the certificate of death there is some points of information that may need clearing up. The certificate states that her father was J. Bryce, his name was Robert. Theodore was the one giving this information and may just not have been prepared at that time. Dicie had a brother by the name of James D. Bryce, a picture of who is in my files. The tintype of which, is in the possession of Vickie Tedford Guynes, of Stockton, California.

Notes for James Mark Tedford:|
\\ James is described as being a little short man who liked to talk about his life in the military.
JAMES MARK TEDFORD \\
Mark was a veteran of WW I. He was in the home of his father in the census of 1920, we have to take into a count that the war had end only a short time before this count so it is not surprising that a single man would be in the home of his parents.
It has also been noted by some that he was ill for the remainder of his life due to the war. I don't know if he were wounded or not.
Funeral services for James Mark Tedford, 63, will be conducted Tuesday afternoon in the College Heights Baptist Church with Rev. Ralph Reasor officiating.

Tedford of Amarillo; one brother, Ed Tedford, of Crosbyton, Texas one sister Emma Day, of Lubbock ; 17 grandchildren and 10 grate grandchildren. The Rev. Albert Hinchley, and John Traylor of College Heights Baptist Church will officiate.
It may have been thought that Theodore middle name may have been Henry after his father William Henry, but it was no more than an initial 'H'. his was not given him at his birth, but later in life. It seems that everyone thought that he should have a middle name or initial. Theodore gave this to himself, it is possibility that he may have had Henry in mind, but it is not known. According to the Texas death Index he was shown as Theodore Henry, but remember that this information may have been given by someone who assumed that to be correct. Vivian Vickie Tedford Guynes\\

Notes for Lorena Frances Jordan:|
"Mother was three years older than Daddy and when they married, there was a lot of resentment. He married an, "older woman," who took him away from the farm. We would go up to Tulia about once a year to visit before he went away to the war for three years. After he came back, we moved to Kentucky for a year and than back to Texas.
He was ill for awhile before he died in 1949, so we didn't get to Tulia but about twice more." Rex J. Cantrell \\

Notes for Raussia Lee Cantrell:|
Raussia had said that Pauline, her sister, had been embarrassed about her mother's pregnancy with her and when she was born, Pauline had made the other children keep it a secret and not tell anyone that they had a baby sister.
The census of Swisher county was taken on March 12th 1920, all the members of the family were counted, that is all but Raussia, who was born just over a month before. So looking at that census record, it looks as though she may have been correct, in that her siblings didn't want her existence to be known. .
