Does anyone have in their records an Edith Halbert and Bessie Halbert born in TX, according to the census records? Edith was my aunt, having married my dad's brother. I have the 1900 census for Johnson Co., TX and Bessie was born in 1890, and Edith was born in 1894. They were living in the household of John T McCormick and wife, Ida Josephine McCormick. The two girls were listed as Halberts and his step-children. This family is also on the 1910 census for Erath Co., TX. Edith married at Thurber, Erath Co., TX, 1913, (James) Hubert McElroy. They had no children. The McElroys moved to Roosevelt, Kiowa Co., OK and both died and were buried there. In the same cemetery it appears the Mccormicks were also buried there, having both died in 1920. I hope someone has a record of these children.
