I am looking for infromation on William Stone who was African American, B. 1862, in Bonham, Fannin, Texas, 600 East 6th Street. Had an illigitimate child with one Virgie bedford of Bonham on the 2nd Jan 1914.The child was later named Carl Frazier. Virgie lived one block away from William at 505 East 6th Street.
