Hi - I am looking for info on my great-grandfather and mother, and any of their former/present relation. I don't have much info, as most of the family has passed on or are unlocateable:
Earl Van Noy b. unknown d. unknown m. unknown
1 - Ivan Edwin b. unknown d. unknown m. Leta Bell Thompson c. Barbara Elaine b. 1942
[nb: it is unconfirmed whether Edwin is, in fact, brother to my Thomas; there is 'hear-tell' that he was Thomas' brother, plus Thomas later gave the middle name 'Elaine' to one of his daughters - could be coincidence.]
2 - Thomas Earl b. unknown d. unknown m. Ellen Bell Mc Corkel b. 1900 d. 1980 - california
Thomas/Ellen children (9 lived, several more died in childbirth/after):
1 - Myrtle b. circa1920 d. m. Roy Bassham - texas
2 - Martha b. 1921 d. 1986 m. Vernell Mitchell Jr
3 - Dorothy b. circa1922 d. m. Clarence Earls
4 - William-Robert b. circa1932 d. m. Betty
5 - Raymond b. circa1934 d. m. Mary
6 - Everett b. circa1935 d.
7 - Ruby b. circa1944 d. m. Alton Hart
8 - Marshall b. circa1945 d. m. Cathy
9 - Inez Elaine (aka Elaine) b. 1948 m. Carl Smith
The generation of the family mentioned above lived in Texas, then moved to California, probably in late 40's-50's - before that...have no further info. It is possible that Earl's parents were from France. I've so far turned up no connections for my branch. If you know of any relation or missing details, would appreciate the assistance greatly.
