Did you ask the first cousin to tell you the names of your Father's sisters?
(Or do you already know their married names and locations)

If the cousin passes the message on, or makes a phone call for you, then good.
If you hear nothing in a few weeks, go back to Schley for a re-visit.
Others can give their ideas and opinions, but you could think about proceeding with the information that you have. Which is one name and three addresses that match that one name, from the link provided to you by kevcrawford.
The San Antonio City Directory will let you look up a name and find an address and phone number, if any. Polk and Co. goes door to door like a census or survey to create those books. Major city libraries should have them.

Thank you soo much,Howard and everyone that has been apart of my journey.It's like you we're right their with me Saturday.I've started letters that I plan to mail off to the remaining addresses if I don't hear nothing by the end of this week.What was the polk and co that you mentioned in your post,Howard?Is it the same thing you mentioned earlier today about infomation at the library?And I didn't catch the names of my "Aunt's".But I did recall Micaela saying that since the property is still in my dad's name,he still receives mail their.So, I'm sending a letter their also.Thank you everyone for your unselfish acts of kindness.I appreciate every piece of information that I have received since visiting this forum that has been like a missing puzzle piece to my life.

Polk & Co. publishes the city directory. Temporary workers go to houses and businesses. They get the name of the head of the household, the address and phone number. If you only know one of those facts, you look it up and you get the other two.
Give the main SA library a call, and ask them if they have the directory. Even if they do not have the 2012 version, the 2011, or 2010 version still lets you look up the name of your Father, or the addresses you have.

Maybe revisit the first cousin, and get the names and locations of your Father's sisters.
His sister's may know more about him that the first cousin does, and the communication may be easier and quicker through his sister's.

His sister's are your Aunt's and they may be very pleased to know they have a niece.

Good luck.

Thank you Howard for all this valuable information.I found the website for the San Antonio Library.They have a list of available resources and database that you can view but searchable information has to be done in the library.I'll let you know what I find their..To be honest,the library is the LAST place I would have looked for any kind of cencus or ancestry records.Thank you soo much for helping me along this process,cause as you can see I was at a stand-still in the progression of my search.

The current City Directory would let you use the addresses you found from the link given by Penquin927, (comment #2 above) and the name(s) you have, to cross reference each one, and match them up.
The addresses may give you new names.
The names may give you more addresses.
The names and addresses may give you phone numbers.
My library has the 2010 City Directory. It won't find people or addresses or numbers from the past, but it current as of the date of it's publication.

Good luck on your trip to the library, to look up the name you have and the addresses you have.

Does anyone have a MyLife paid subscription?I'm asking because I sent my dad a message a while back.I left my phone number,but it's changed since then.I have a basic account and it kills me that I can't even send a message without being re-directed to the subscriptions page to select a payment...

i don't know what that is but i would not bother with a pay site of any kind. if somebody then also has to pay to retrieve the info. it is unlikely it will ever be found. so you have a valid addresss so far but no phone number? and you haven't been to that address yet?

I've been to two addresses,Kelly rd in Atascosa,tx and Schley ave in San Antonio,Tx.The Schley address was where I found my dad's first cousin.I gave her my name and phone number and she said that she'd give it to my dad's sisters because they are the only ones she talks to.

The City Directory will give you the phone numbers, for all 3 of the addresses that you have not visited.
Keats Ave
S. State Hwy 16
Vickers Ave

The first cousin may not give the message any time soon, and you may not even need her help, once you visit the library and 3 other addresses. Maybe tomorrow is a good day to take a trip up there.
