1.  Good friend Jim Ezell got me started on his line with some names, dates, and locations.  I found his family in one census and called him to confirm, and he indeed recognized the names of all his siblings listed.
2.  The research was expanded through various census records on Ancestry.com and additional data from several memorials on Findagrave.com.
