Was Morgan D. Roderick working in Washington, DC in 1930?. Perhaps Mrs Eva L RODERICK died sometime after 1930 (or they divorced?) and her husband, Morgan David Roderick remarried Miss Walterrene PRICE.

Walterrene Price born 1918 and her sister, Zelma W born abt 1921 were daughters of Robert PRICE & Zelma WELLS. It seems that Walterrene PRICE married Morgan David RODERICK who was 31 years her senior. Maybe they married after his wife, Eva died (if she indeed died in 1941). I cannot fine Eva RODERICK's death in the Florida Death Index:

Apparently Walterrene (Price) Roderick attended Mississippi University for Women. She is listed in 2000 Honor Roll of Donors for her contribution. She is mentioned in the Mississippi Law Journal Vol 74 (2004-2005) in an article titled "Ole Miss Law School 1939-1942"
by RH Cannada - 2004 "Her name was Walterrene Price".

There is a phone listed at for Morgan D Roderick
in Arlington, Virginia. Perhaps he is the son of Morgan D and Eva RODERICK. If so, he would be 93 yrs old now.

I am not related and have no other info.
