  • Notes 
    • After arriving in Jones County, around 1919, they lived on the King Ranch about 5 miles south of Lueders (Chimney Rock area). Later they lived at Ft. Phantom Hill on Elm Creek, where McGregor died and also Lydia Caroline Reich Willingham Scott. It was a rented farm, and the house was a large two story. Minnie moved to the west side of the Clear Fork River about a mile from the "Meadows Place" where Dolly, George and family lived.
      Newel, Jewel and Miriam still lived with Minnie (their mother) but all three soon married. Then Minnie married Mr. Roberts (we called him Pa) and they moved to his farm east of Hamby.
      The family (Willingham's) were living at Ft. Phantom when George and Dolly met.
    • Willingham and Mitchell wedding announcement in Burleson County Ledger and News Chronicle Friday March 10, 1911, Vol. 27, No2, Ed 1

      Wednesday evening at the residence of Robert Haddox in the Hix community, Rev. A. H. Broaddus united in marriage Doc Willingham and Miss Minnie Mitchell after which the bridal party was served a splendid wedding party. Then all retired to the residence of B. G. Jackson, where they spent a few hours in pleasant conversation. It was one of the most pleasant affairs in that section for quite awhile.

      The bride was born and reared in that community, is an exceedingly amiable lady with friends wherever she is known, while the groom, who was born and raised near Cookes Point, is a prosperous farmer now located in West Texas, where they will make their home.
