Query: Hyde

I am searching for John William Hyde and Rosanna Morgan Hyde. They are listed on the 1880 US Federal Census in Wood County, TX. Their children were all born there. My Grandfather, Jefferson Davis Hyde and son of John William Hyde and Rosanna Morgan was the youngest child. I have been told that John William Hyde died before he was born and that his mother, Rosanna Morgan Hyde died when he and his sister Margaret were little.

I’m pretty sure that they lived in Quitman as that is what I have always heard but also have heard Rock Hill or Yantis. If he died before my Grandfather, Jefferson Davis Hyde was born that would have been in 1883 as Jefferson Davis Hyde was born January 21, 1884. Rosanna Morgan Hyde sometime after that.

John William Hyde B. abt 1842 in Missouri
Rosanna Morgan B. abot 1847 in Georgia
Children:
McDonnel Hyde B. abt 1867 Wood Co,TX
James Bulger Hyde B. abt 1871 Wood Co, TX
Pheobia Hyde B. abt 1875 Wood Co, TX
John Louis Hyde B. abt 1876 Wood Co, TX, D.in Nolan Co, TX
William Hyde B. abt 1879 Wood Co, TX
Margaret Hyde B. 1881 Wood Co, TX D. October 31, 1920 – buried in Rockhill
Cemetery, Yantis, TX
Jefferson Davis Hyde B. January 21, 1884 D. Sweetwater, Nolan Co, TX
December, 1955 – Buried Slaters Chapel – Nolan, TX

I have searched all the records I know how to including the cemeteries that are online to no avail. I am hoping you can shed some light on this.

I am also searching for Ruth P. Hyde, first born of Jefferson Davis Hyde. She was born October 31, 1906 in Wood Co, TX She died in 1913. I have heard that she was buried in the cemetery in Yantis.

Thanking you in advance for your help.
