    • At the time of the 1920 Sabine County, Texas census, Thomas and Martha Felts had eight children living at home with them, ranging from 32 year old William to 9 year old Robert. They lived next door to 31 year old Walter Felts. He is assumed to be their son based in their last name, their proximity, his age and place of birth, and the place of birth of his parents per the census records. This is based solely on census information, and has not yet been verified based on other records. Additionally, 27 year old Virgil D. Felts (Household #345-365) and 27 year old Clarence E. Felts (Household #358-378) are also assumed to be sons based on their last name, ages, place of birth and the places of births of their parents. This also is based soley on census records.
