Hi. I'm not related to this family. According to Paul's WWI draft card he was b. TX:

U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 about Paul Cleveland Boykin
Name:        Paul Cleveland Boykin
County: McIntosh
State:        Oklahoma
Birthplace: Texas
Birth Date: 15 Aug 1890
Race:        White
Age: 26
Occupation: Farming
Nearest Relative: wife & 2 children

OTOH, the 1920 & 1930 Census info for Mcintosh, OK states he was b. Miss, parents b. Miss. Part of the problem may be that he may have lived in TX when he was a boy. This might be him in 1900 with mother Eugenia remarried to a William Hoffman:

Irene Boykin        7 -stepdau- b. Aug 1892 Miss
Emmet Boykin        5 -stepson- b. Apr 1895 Miss

If this is his family, Paul's father died bef 1900 so there would be no WWI draft card for him.

Here is a death record for Paul:

Paul C Boykin, "California, Death Index, 1940-1997"

Birthplace:        Mississippi
Gender:        Male
Father's Name:        
Mother's Name:        Bradford

In 1910, Paul may have been married to a Cynthia. https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MLQ3-HQJ
From 1920 on he was married to a Lola.

Hope this helps. Annie
