I spent a lot of time finding census data on all of W. L. Macatee’s sons because I thought that my research may turn in the direction of tracking the family’s movements and successes. This did not work out because I found the 10 year gaps in census information to leave too much ambiguity. Also, I could not find many articles about W. L. Macatee himself and I couldn’t find any on the sons.

What I did asses from the census data is that the Macatee sons worked for their father through all the census years that are available. George P. Macatee ran the Macatee Hotel and then eventually moved to Dallas to help the company when it expanded. Leonard W. Macatee worked as vice president of W. L. Macatee and sons for many years. Joseph I. Macatee worked for the family company as well as the family hotel. This information made me more confident in the success of W. L. Macatee and Sons but it also left me with more questions than answers.
