I found this interesting case from the Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas.
Dated 28 Jan 1931. W. T. Dunn v. the State. Original opinion dated 2 Apr 1930. Overruled.
Dunn, while cashier of the Altoga State Bank, at a time he did not have $500.00 to his credit in the bank, and did not have that amount owing to him by said bank, gave a check for $500 on said bank and caused it to be paid out of bank funds.
It is clear he was a cashier at the time. He did not have said sum to his credit on 1 Oct 1926 as proved by Mr. Holderness, bank examiner. The check was for $500 to Higginbotham-Bailey-Logan Co of Dallas. Mr. Holderness swore that on Nov 22nd, after the bank burned, he went to see about it and the appellant gave him a $500 check drawn in favor of H.B.L.Co on 1 Oct 1926, which was endorsed by them to the Repulic National Bank of Dallas, appellant telling Mr. Holderness at the time the said check belonged to the bank and was being carried as cash.
The appellant maintained that the heads and managers of accounting deparments that had testified, could not know by personal contact as to the information that were testifying about and should not have been entered as evidence. There had been a motion for rehearing of the case but that was overruled.

Nancy E. Hooker, dau, age 1 [could this be Eugenia? or was she born after 1880?]

In the 1930 Census, Jean gave her age as 47, or born about 1883 so she would not have been listed in the family in 1880. She was born in Texas, her father b. TN, her mother b. in OK. [Alabama seems considerably more likely.]
