Jim Williams use to have this little Poem on a business card. On the other side of the card he would have a good dog. Then he would advertise dogs for sale his address and phone number and all the info to help sell a dog. At one time he had' 'Nine time winning Hanson's Redman's Photo' on the front side of the business card and had the Joke on the back side. Somehow he got to be a 14 time winner on Pedigrees's Online. He won four fights after his death. What a dog.

Now I am so old and gray. My pilot light's gone out.
What used to be my sex appeal, is now my water spout.
I used to be so embarrassed to make that thing behave,
Each and every morning it'd stand and watch me shave.
Now I am much older...and it really gives me the blues.
To see it hang down........and watch me shine my shoes!

Bill's De Cordova's second Wife
Olivia Anna Weiss deCordova
Birth: Jan. 4, 1908
Death: Jul. 8, 1974

Daughter of Edward M. & Anna MEYER Weiss

Family links:
Edward M. Weiss (1874 - 1941)
Anna Meyer Weiss (1880 - 1969)

First Spouse:
Tobe Arvin Herring (1901 - 1954) 

#2 Spouse - Bill de Cordova                     

Sandra Sue Herring (1943 - 1954)*

Bill's second wife Olivia was married to a man named Toby Arvin Herring. Toby killed thier daughter and then killed himself in 1954. The daughter was eleven at the time. You can see that they both died in 1954 on the above records. Bill who was a butcher worked with Olivia at the Mountian view, Oklahoma Grocery store.They became friends and later married. I can't imagine what that nice lady went through with her husband killing thier daughter and then killing himself. I visted Bill and Olivia many times and they were both wonderful people.

Years ago they had a dogfight here on main street.
No one cared back then. Everyone showed up. Humans were humans and dogs were dogs back then.

Jim Williams & Bill de Cordova's home town.
This is Mountian View, Oklahoma. It is sad to go there all my friends are dead.

Some more of mountian View, Oklahoma.
We talked to the local police there. They had never heard of the old Sheriff Jim Williams.


Ed Weldon and the famous Jimmy Boots

Light'in Billy was a blue eyed iindian from McCurtain County, Oklahoma. He fought a few dogs and was said to be a dangerous man. A young boy killed him and he served no time for it.

T.P stand. Some nice Indians let us take photos.
These were taken on the way to Jim Williams home from my home.

I've read somewhere that Jim Williams got Earl out of trouble when Earl Tudor got crossways with the law. That was hogwash. Jim was only the Town Marshall of Mountian View,Oklahoma most of his life. He was in no position to get someone at Hobart,Oklahoma out of trouble. He did work as a Deputy Sheriff of Kiowa County for a short while and he could have called Earl with warnings of raids. Yet he was still in no position of covering for Earl and getting him out of trouble with that job. I lived right between both towns in a little town called Gotebo. Look it up on a map of Oklahoma. I ran around in both towns and knew both men and can testify that story is crazy.

Jim & Veda Williams as young people.
Jim was Mountain View Sheriff for years and Vada was a Beautician.

The late Jim Willliams.

Another picture of Bill de Cordova.

Bill de Cordova's Grave. Notice the spelling.

Bill de Cordova's wife.
I'm not sure which man she is buried by. I can't see being buried by someone that killed my child.
