    Notes 
    • William Robert Minter (Bill) was born and grew up in Lineville in Clay county Alabama. In Dec. 1892 he married Lula Haynes. In 1893 they migrated to Collin County Texas along with brothers and sisters from both families. In 1901 or 1902 Bill moved his family to Simms in Bowie county Texas. About 1905 they returned to Collin county and in 1910 back to Bowie county. He was a tennant farmer most of his working life. No records have been found to indicate that he owned property. After the death of Lula in 1911 he married Joicey Prince (Cricket), a widow. They had no children and she died in 1919. Shortly after that he married Edna Tittle and they had 3 children. That marriage ended in divorce. He moved to Plainview TX for several years, but returned to Simms in the early 1930's where he lived until his death in 1942.
      Died in his sleep after listening to the first Joe Louis/Billie Conn fight on the radio.
