I am trying to locate my grandmother's birth parents. Her birthname was Louise Marie RUDD. She was born 4/4/23 and adopted 2 months later through the West Texas Children's Welfare and Aid Assn. under the direction of Rev.W.A. Nicholas. I contacted the Howard County Courthouse and they do not have a birth record for Louise Marie RUDD.  I know there were some RUDD's in Big Spring about that time period.  Tom and Cora RUDD had many children-any suggestions?

James A. FRANKLIN died Sept.17, 1907. We have my Ggrandmother's bible and it says when he died he died in Harrison County, Texas and that he was buried in Howard County School. This does not make sense. Was there a graveyard at Howard County School?  Any info appreciated.
