Can someone identify this man?

Benjamin D. Griffin, b. 1872, Mississippi
1910, he is on the McLennan Co, TX census, 38 y/o, married 14 years to Betty, 41. She had had no children. His occupation was Minister--student. His mother, Marilda, 72 and widowed, b. MS lived with them.

in 1920, he is 48 y/o, a minister, and lived in Tulare County, CA with his wife, Jenne L, 31, b. CA and two children, Merle, son, 10 and Frances, daughter, 5. There were 14 lodgers in their house.

1930, he is in Lemoore, Kings County, CA, 58 y/o widowed, living alone and is a cook at a lunch counter.

In each census, he gives his place of birth as MS and says both parents were b. MS.

I have tentatively identified him as the son of Mitchell Griffin of Calhoun County, MS. Mitchell was a twin son of Levi Griffin and Didamah Winter.

I have been unable to find the son, Merle, or the daughter, Frances. Does anyone have this family?
