Re: Leo Walter Myers b. 1908 OK

In Reply to: Leo Walter Myers b. 1908 OK by Rebecca Ledford of 32090

I'm not related - but I've pieced some of it together

Leo was the son of Walter Clarence Myers and Matilda Gervais.
Leo apparently was married to May (LNU) and had Hubert J. and Matilda. I believe Hubert J. is Jack Hubert who is in the 1940 census as a Newphew with Leo's sister Ethel Florence Myers Borne and her husband Hubert. Jack Hubert apparently lied about his age and went into the Navy in Louisiana in WWII. He died in service in 1945 and is buried in Bartlesville (age 17) - His Aunt, Ethel Borne, ordered his military headstone. (She was living in New Orleans at the time.)

Unclear whether Walter Clarence and Matilda were divorced or whether he died.

Leo and Hazel show up in a Bartlesville city directory in 1935, and in Springfield, Missouri directory in 1939. It appears the family was missed in the 1940 census (UGH!)

The Hazel Nadine Green you found in Tarrant TX is correct. She was the daughter of Nathan Green and Sarah/Sadie Buckner, both of Tennessee. Nathan and Sadie were married 1/26/1908 in Warren Co. TN.

1910 Lawton, Comanche, OK
Green, Nathan 21 TN TN TN md 3 yrs laborer
Sadie 19 wife TN TN TN mother of 1,1 living
James 1 OK TN TN

next door
Jones, Sam P 20 TN TN TN md 1 yr laborer
Jona 18 wife TN TN TN (She is Nathan Green's sister)

Sam Jones md Jonia Green 1/16/1908 Warren, TN

1920 Ft. Worth Tarrant, TX (Very Faded) (as ancestry has it)
Green, E. V 31 TN TN TN (? N)
Sadie 29 TN TN TN
James, 11 OK TN TN
Ray 9 OK TN TN
Harriet TX TN TN (Hazel)
N* TX TN TN (Nat)

Unclear what happened to Nathan and Sadie. Nathan Jr shows up with his Aunt and Uncle in 1930 Bartlesville.

1930 Bartlesville, Washington, OK
Jones, Sam P 40 TN TN TN
Jonna A. 37 TN TN SC
Lucille V. 17 OK
Dorothy L. 15 OK
Sam P 13 OK
Eugene 9 OK
James E 5 OK
Green Nathan 12 TX TN TN

I believe Leo's brother Joseph W. Myers was b. 8/9/1906, served in the coast guard and died 11/26/1983 with a last residence of Medford, Jackson, Oregon. Buried Eagle Pt.

I think this may be Patricia's brother, Leo -

Leo Walter Myers
b. 1/3/1941 MO
d 3/31/1993 San Joaquin, CA

Since both Leo Sr and Hazel's SSn's were issued in Missouri, it is likely that they were there ~1939-1950ish. Typewriter repairmen would likely have traveled a lot.

Bartlesville OK is in 2 counties, Washington, and Osage. I suggest you contact the clerk's office in both counties regarding marriage records. They should exist for the late 20s and early 30s.
