    Notes 
    • Georgia Zimmerle was the only daughter of Riley & Aggie and was doted on. She fell in love and married a baseball player by the name of Bill Shores. He went on to become a Major League player, playing with the Giants and the White Sox. Georgia traveled with him and lived in places far away from her home in Texas. They had two beautiful little girls. But sadly, she knew the heartbreak of losing two other babies during that marriage and the marriage later ended in divorce. She remarried to Oliver Jennings Gibson. She suffered from an addiction (some say prescription drugs) that eventually took her life. Her family suffered with her her through it all and tried their best to help her. Her body discovered days after she had died at home in Dallas, was laid to rest in the small cemetery of Dewey, back among her family who loved her.
