I am helping a friend trace her family. Her mother's name is Viola Edith Buck. Viola married Elmer Leroy Herron, son of Frederick and Irene C Herron. Frederick states in the 1930 census that he was born in California, father born Ohio, mother born Iowa. Frederick was a U.S. Government Civil Engineer. 1930 he is in Waashington D.C., divorced with his two sons George E or C and Elmer L. 1920 has him in San Francisco California with his wife Irene C age 23 born Texas, mother born Arkansas, father born Ohio. Listed with them in San Franciso are the two sons George born Texas 1913/1914 and Elmer L. born 1915.
Frederick and Irene must have divorced sometime between January 1920 and 1930 Census (date blank on census) since Frederick is listd as divorced in 1930.
Elmer Leroy Herron marriec Viola Edith Buck around 1936/1937 possibly in Washington D.C. as their eldest daughter was born there in 1938. Their second daughter was born 1939 in El Centro, Imperial County, California.
Viola Edith Buck Herron must have divorced Elmer prior to 1943 as her Social Security Records indicate a name change to Viola Edith McWhorter. Elmer lived until March 1992. Viola married a third time to Mr. McDougal (my friends father).
Elmer and Viola's eldest daughter married Ray Bean. They had three children: Danny, Kathy and Pam.
I would like to connect with anyone who has information on our Frederick, his sons and descendants of Elmer Leroy Herron.
Thank you in advance for your time and efforts!
