See contact with desc and/or interested parties-- brothers Elbert McKinney BARNES and Leonard Doyle BARNES.
Elbert McKinney BARNES was b. May 1919 in McLennan Co, TX. Leonard Doyle BARNES was b. Jun 1920 in McLennan Co, TX. They were sons of Elbert Munroe BARNES and wife Martha Lou McKINNEY.
When Elbert Munroe and Martha divorced in Sep 1921 in McLennan Co, TX, the sons were given into the care of separate local Waco families. Elbert McKinney (who was nicknamed 'Mac') lived with Dudley GAMMON & wife Ida UPCHURCH.
We do not know the identity of the family with whom Leonard Doyle went to live.
Martha Lou remarried to Richard Gabriel PARSHALL in Oct 1927 in Waco, McLennan Co, TX and moved to the Houston area. Martha d. Jan 1962 in Harris Co, TX and is buried there in Brookside Cemetery.
Elbert Munroe remarried to Odie Faye BOWERS and moved to the TX Panhandle, settling in Levelland, Hockley Co, TX. Elbert Munroe d. Mar 1976 in Hockley Co, TX and is buried there in Levelland [City] Cemetery.
Both parents had additional children-- Martha had 4; Elbert had 11.
Will gladly exchange info and photos of these families, but especially wish contact with Leonard Doyle's branch. Any help is appreciated and you have my thanks in advance.
