Teresa -- sorry about the delay in responding. Here is what I have on Opal Enochs and Claude Williams. I was not sure how much info you wanted on Claude, but will give you what I have. I'd be grateful for any info you can provide on the Enochs side. I am related to Claude through his second marriage to Velma Saddoris --- her mother and my grandfather were brother and sister.
Claude James Williams -- born 29 AUG 1900, Denison, TX. Married 1st Opal Enochs, 17 JUL 1922, Denison, divorced 22 OCT 1923. One son -- Jack -- born about 1923.
Married second: Velma Saddoris, 16 AUG, 1924, Hollywood, CA. Divorced in late 1920s. One son, Kenneth, born 1929.
Died 10 APR 1990, Carrolton, TX. Occupation -- nurseryman and florist.
Parents:

Landon: Born 12 APR 1866, Baldwyn, Miss, married 20 NOV 1889, Cooper, TX, died 29 JUL 1947, Dennison, TX. Occupation -- retired lumberman.

They had five children:

Clarence A. Williams, born about 1895 in Oklahoma. Married about 1921 to Ora L. Occupation -- tree surgeon. Living in Dallas in 1947 and 1955.
May Williams Vineyard: Born 1897, Oklahoma. Married about 1914 at age 17 to Rheuben Vineyard in Denison, TX. He was listed as a railroad worker in the 1930 census.
Claude James Williams.
Lola Marie Williams Tye. Born 17 JUL 1912. Married J.E. Tue about 1930. Died 4 SEP 1988, Waco, TX.
The parents of Landon James Williams were:
John R. Wiliams and Elizabeth Rodgers Willims.
John was born about 1818 in Alabama. He married Elizabeth prior to 1850 in Mississippi and was a farmer.
Elizabeth was born about 1825 in Tennessee.
They had at least eight children -- John, Mayma, Samuel, James, Mary, Sarah, Rufus and Landon. All born in Mississippi.
Mary Berry was the daughter of Allen Grffin Berry and Mary Ann Cunningham.
Allen was born about 1837-39 in Alabama, and married prior to 1866. He died in 1925 in Denison, TX.
Mary Ann Cunningham was born 9 SEP 1844 in Franklin County, Alabama, and died 15 NOV 1936. They had seven children:
Sarah, William, James, Mary Mollie, Anna L., Maggie and Ed.
Allen Berry was the son of Jeptha Berry, born in 1814 in Tennessee, and married 17 FEB 1833 in Blount, Ala., to Sarah Kelley. He died after 1880. He was listed as a mechanic and carpenter and could not read or write. Sarah Kelley was born in 1814 in Tennessee, and died after 1880. hey were both listed in the 1880 census in Visalia Township, Tulare County, California.
Mary Ann Cunningham's parents were JJ Cunningham and Emma Nolan, both born in Alabama.

That is all I have on the Williams or Berrys. I'd appreciate any information you can share on Claude or his descendants.
Thanks again!

Tia Chang.
