I am looking for information on my father, James Melvin Turpen, Born in 1910 or 11 in Ark.(Do not know where.)Living in Pueblo, Pueblo, Co. in 1949. I lost contact with my father in 1949. His father was Cad Allard Turpen and his mother was Maud Laverna (?) (Don't know maiden name) They were married in Ark. in 1907 and he had a sister named Edna Ruth, born in 1908 in Ark.( do not know where).Some say Cad and Laverna were married in LIttle Rock, Van Buren,Ark., but Little Rock is Pulaski County and Van Buren is Crawford County.(?) I can find them in 1920 & 1930 census for Pueblo, Co.But before 1910 and after 1930 is a blank. Cads' mothers' name was Melissia Shaw from Missouri and her father from Ala. Don't know where.Laverna was from Missouri also.(?) Don't know Cads' father, just Turpen. Laverna deserted Cad and he later divorced her and she married a Thomas H. Gordon, from Missouri.I guess in Colo. They were in Fort Worth,Tarrant County in 1927. But back in Co in 1930, James Melvin married my mother Aveta Aleene Haggardin 1930 or 1931., In Texas.Fort Worth, I guess.Never thought to ask. He was 21 and she was almost 18,I was born in Ft. Worth. Can some one help me with thia?I have been searching for four years. Would like to know before I leave this world. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
