Louella Bussey Morris Wooten East TX

Years ago I posted this:
"Lou Ella Bussey married a Jordan Morris in Shelby Co, TX 06 January 1895. By 1900 she was married to Ruben Wooten. She had at least one child by Jordan Morris, a girl named Estella. I really need to find out about this first husband Jordan Morris. I have an ancestor by that name who was last know to be in Claiborne Parish LA in 1860. His descendants were in Shelby Co TX in the 1890's. If this Jordan Morris is my missing grandpa, he would have been 85 yrs old when he married Lou Ella."

Then, as now, I think Louella's first husband is related to my Morris family, a descendant of my ancestor Jordan Morris. I have a theory that Jordan Morris, husband of Louella, is actually my g-uncle Wilks J Morris. Wilks J Morris disappears by 1900 and his mother reports to the census that she has 2 fewer living children than I can account for.

I found that Jordan and Louella's little girl Estella is actually Ethel Estelle Morris who married Marvin Clyde Stewart. In 1933, the Stewart couple had a son Charles Parker Stewart. Marvin Stewart died in Hidalgo Co. Oct 1978.

Louella Bussey Morris Wooten is also my great aunt's mother in law, in a different line.
