Thank you so much for the info! I just saw your response. All the information is for the same family. Walter's father was Benjamin Levi/Lee Matkin, son of Durham Matkin and Cornelia Jane (Askew/Eskew) Matkin of Morgan Co., AL. Walter's sister was Minnie Matkin Ellis, wife of W.A. Ellis. Walter was born in Lott, Falls Co., TX. His sister, Minnie was born in TN. His parents married in Marshall Co., MS. You'll see the surname spelled a variety of ways from Matkin, Matkins, Madkin(s), Mattkin, Mattkyn, etc. It has even been transcribed accidentally as Watkins. His sister married in Leesville, LA and at least two of her children were born there. The Emma Humphreys listed in the 1910 Census is thought to be a close relative of Walter's mother, Anne L. Humphreys, most probably a sister.
Again, thank you for your help!
