I am trying to locate decendants of my Grt Aunt Vic.
1910 US Census Clay County Fl.
Darling Carter age 31---head
Victoria Carter age 18---wife

1920 US Census Clay County Fl.
Darling Carter age 40---head
Raymond Carter age 8---son
Gertie Carter age 6---dau

Aunt Vic moved to Texas and was using Pearl as first name instead of Vic and last name Baker, this was told to me by my grandmother (her sister) and also by other family members.

1920 US Census Tarrant County Texas.
William M. Baker age 26---head
Pearl Baker age 24 (a little difference in age)---wife, POB: Florida, FPOB: Florida, MPOB: Florida
Earl Broughen age 29---boarder

1930 US Census Tarrant County Texas, 9th Ward, 729 Samuels Avenue
W. M. Baker age 36---head
Pearle Baker age 37---wife, POB: FL, FPOB: FL, MPOB: FL
Gertrude Baker age 17--daughter, POB: FL, FPOB: TX, MPOB:FL
Raymond Baker age 12 (it appears the census taker wrote his year of birth as his age)--son, POB: FL. FPOB: TX, MPOB: Fl
I don't know at point if Mr. Baker adopted Raymond and Gertrude or if they were just using his last name.

1936 Fort Worth City directory shows William M. and Pear Baker living at this same address of 729 Samuels Avenue. I have tried without success to contact neighbors who may have know my aunt and her family.
