Memory Mae Carter & James Mattson Hicks Died In Gustine, Texas 1940s

I’m not even going to explain Rickey’s connection to this one because I will just confuse you. Suffice it to say that it comes in through the Redwine line who married into the Hicks family.

Pictured below are the Carter sisters, Leva, Memory, and Josie. Memory was born on July 28, 1880, in Texas to Elbert Carter and Isabelle Catherine Hendricks Carter.

Memory stands in the middle of her sisters.

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
