Help Finding GGG Grandparents?

I'm looking for information on West Levingston's parents, sisters and/or brothers. West was born May 1873; his father was born in S. Carolina and mother born in Texas. This is West's family:

Harriet (Hattie) Daniel (wife) b. Mar 1876, Weldon, TX

Hennie Levingston (daughter), b. TX

Viola Levingston (daughter), b. TX

Joanna Levingston (daughter), b. TX

Cassie B. Levingston (daughter), b. TX

Woodrow Levingston (son), b. TX

Arthur Levingston (son), b. TX

West Levingston, Jr. (son), b. TX

Granison Levingston (?), b. TX

Horace Levingston (son), b. TX

If any info is found that would be great!

Update:

Yes you are on the right track.

    The Texas Death Index lists a West Levingston who died in Harris County, TX on 10 Dec 1958. If that's your guy, you can order a copy of his death certificate, which should give you his parents' names. Here's a link with information about how to order a death certificate: http://www.vitalrec.com/tx.html

    You may already have this info, but the Texas Marriage Index lists: Wes Livingston married Harriet Daniels on 3 Nov 1892 in Houston, TX

    Edit: Okay, wow, I just found this site which has Texas death certificate info online (including parents names, etc).

    Cherry Levingston 24

    Weslie Levingston 20

    Horace Levingston 29

    Edit:

    The census image gives the following information they rented their home and it says the value of it is 15 ? whether thats the amount of rent per month I don't know, I'm a UK researcher and the census returns are different to ours over here. They married at age 23 so that would be 1929 and the males in the household worked as concrete work

    contractors and Cherry was a laundress (resident) .

    Edit:

    The 1910 census return states that Wess and Hattie married at age 17, and that they were both born in Texas as were both of their parents. Wess was listed as a farmer.

    Why do top contributors copy each other, is that all it takes to be a top contributor then.

    Source(s): Just curious.
