Weatherford, Texas, thirty miles west of Fort Worth, was incorporated in 1859. Its grand architecture attests to its boom-town status in the late nineteenth century. With the arrival of the railroad in 1880, Weatherford became a stop for pioneers heading west. Perhaps the father of Jeff, George, Oliver, and Lillie Wayes worked for the railroad or one of the service industries that sprang up around it.
