Caro, thank you so much. i really appreciate it. and yes your right, Maurine M. was my aunt. it does seem as if i'll never find Myrtle Marie's parents. though in one census, she says her dad's from Ill. and her mom from Mississippi. it's rumored she was cherokee, or possibly hispanic, because she was dark and short. as was my mom and I. but most everyone says cherokee.
i have their wedding photo, they were both beutiful people to look at.his blonde hair,light blue eyes, and her dark brown pompador,and brown eyes.
i never knew ether one of them,she died in Houston around 1938 or so,at the age of 41,and he died at the age of 51. so sad. i also didn't know he signed up for the draft,my mom never mentioned that.
she did say her sister Virginia Nell, died at about 6 months of age.so she died one year,and my mom's mom died the next.
well, thank you for your help, maybe,something will come up about her parents soon. thank you sheila
