I am looking for the parents of Franklin T Lemons.

Here's what I know so far (Typed below, just as the records are transcribed)...

11. 8 April 1936 – Lula Lemons dies (Mother listed as Caroline Motes) in Stamford, Texas. Highland Cemetery, Stamford, Haskell, Texas. Plot: SW 1/4 Blk 1 Sect 13.

12. 24 January 1938 – Frank Lemons dies in Stamford, Texas. Highland Cemetery, Stamford, Haskell, Texas. Plot: SW 1/4 Blk 1 Sect 13.



Now, on the 1910 Census, where Frank's parents are listed as being from England and Germany, there is an immigration year. I believe it says 1880, but possibly 1886. Because on other censuses he lists his parents as being from TN, I believe they must've immigrated as well, rather than him having immigrated alone. On the same census, in the married or single column, both he and Lula are listed as "m2", which I take to mean it is both of their second marriage. I know Lula was previously married, but so far I have not found a previous wife of Frank's.

If anyone has any information at all on this family, please, I would REALLY appreciate it. I'm dying to know his parents' names.
