John Kennedy Erwin, son of John Franklin Erwin - Serena Smith according to his parent's obits. Jack County newspaper account show his parents were living around the Joplin / Perrin area..

Because of the location in Jack County and the date range during World War II, I suspect you might look for a marriage records in Palo Pinto County, Texas. I suspect they might have gotten married in Mineral Wells during the War. Mineral Wells had a "sub-courthouse" in that time period which would have been closer than Jack County's courthouse for a marriage license. One can obtain a marriage license anywhere in Texas and be married anywhere in Texas with that license.

1942 would have made your mother only 17 which would have required parental consent, but after 1943, she would have been able to marry without consent.
