Pettus family in Paris, Texas

Hoping someone might help me put some pieces together. My grandfather was born in Paris, TX in 1919, JT Pettus (later the army made him change it to James Thomas Pettus). His mother was Cora Mae Palmer, father Benjamin Franklin Pettus. I think they moved between Paris and Bairdstown Texas, and later moved to a small town near Tulsa, OK, then to Kansas City. I believe Cora Mae's siblings were Frances and Anne and Thomas Palmer. Benjamin Franklin Pettus had siblings...sisters Beulah, AnnaBelle, Rebecca, and Olma, who lived until recently in Irving, Texas. BF Pettus also had one brother, name unknown to me. Does anybody know anything about these folks?
