Tanya, to date I have found a little more info. re Charles R. Rhoads. He was b. July 7, 1907, in Wise Co., TX; d. Sept. 16, 1993, Big Spring, Howard Co., TX. Nova was b. Sept. 8, 1913, and d. March, 1982. (from Social Security Death Index online)

There is a marriage in Howard Co., TX, of William A. Knettle, 21, and Regina Rhoads, 25 (b. ca. 1948) on Apr. 14, 1973. Wm. apparently d. Mar. 8, 1984, in Dallas Co., TX.

In the Howard Co., TX, vital records at rootsweb, are these births: Robert Conway Rhoads, Apr. 15, 1970, and Shawn Lanelle Rhoads on June 21, 1973 IF these are the children of Regina, she either was not married at the time of their births or the surname was changed if/when they were adopted by Charlie and Nova. Note that the marriage to Wm. Knettle was almost three years after the birth of Shawn.

If I come across anything else in my files or online, I'll post it.

Would love to hear from you again. Charlie Rhoads' mother was my late dad's first cousin.
