looking for information on the children of Perry and Mildred LYONS...."adopted" by Dorothy (maiden Houchins) Parker Pasho.

Was told Perry married second Dorothy Parker somewhere in Virginia. Perry Lyons died in Seabrook/Houston in 1954.

Dorothy, her children from first marriage: Willard Ray, Elizabeth E, and Charles Martin Parker and Perry's children Gertrude, Inez, Perry Jr, James Robert, Minnie Sue and Doris Lyons supposedly lived in the Hempstead or Houston area of Texas up until about 1959.

They moved to Wyoming were Sue's son John was born May 10, 1960. Dorothy "adopted" John and he took Dorothy's 3rd husband Prentiss Pasho surname, after their marriage in 1963 in Las Vegas. At some point Dorothy also "adopted" a neighbors daughter Charlotte Diane who also took the name Pasho.

My problem is I cannot locate the Lyons children on ANY census tho at least some of them should be on the 1940 census in either Va or Tx. Nor can I locate any school/yearbook records for them anywhere. I have located some of the Parkers on current records....but need to know where they were in the 40's and 50's when they were teens or early 20's.

If this sounds familiar would apreciate any help
