Joe Blakley/ Ester Cleveland connection Texas

I am researching the Blakley side of my family tree. The information I have is that Joe Blakley married an Ester Cleveland. They had a son Leo Cleveland Blakley(my grandfather) born 1916. There may have been other siblings. He married Evelyn Lorraine Donohoe. I have had tremendous success in researching the Donohoe side. That family goes back several generations in Texas so I'm going to assume that Joe Blakley was born there as well. Joe Blakley's wife Ester Cleveland had a brother named Lafayette Cleveland who lived in Vacaville, California. The story goes that Ester Cleveland is related to Grover Cleveland but I'm not holding my breath on that tall Texas tail!
If my math is right Joe Blakley would have been born in the 1890's possibly in Sherman, Grayson Co. Texas.Any information is greatly appreciated ! Dan
