I would like to know more about the family of this couple.
Varona / Verona BAKER born Tennessee abt 1872 lived in Madison Co., Alabama in 1880 (daughter of William and Mary); married Nathaniel WADDELL 1 Dec 1889 in Logan County, Arkansas. I didn't find them in the 1900 census, but in 1910 they were in Logan County, Arkansas and in 1920 they were in Fort Smith, Sebastian, Arkansas. Nine known children, and at least 3 others I don't have names for, 2 of whom died before 1910.
Nathaniel WADDELL born abt 1854 Mississippi (Marshall County?), in 1860 he was in Greene County, Missouri (son of Jesse and Olivia/Luvice/Laviett depending on which census you're looking at). With his parents in 1870 and 1880 in Short Mountain twp., Logan County, Arkansas. Nathaniel died 2 Dec 1917 in Logan County, Arkansas before his widow and children moved to Fort Smith.
Verona seems to have married a C. W. WILLIE on 21 Jan 1919 in Fort Smith, but he is not with her in the 1920 census. She then married F. C. WILLIAMS 15 Mar 1923 in Fort Smith. I believe she may have gone to the Los Angeles area of California with some of her children before 1930.
Known children: 1) Frances Marie "Frankie" married Lee R Shamblin abt 1918 place unknown 2) Lydia 3) Eulalia married Samuel Wallace Williams Jr. 10 Feb 1919 in Fort Smith, Sebastian, Arkansas 4) George Henry married Elizabeth Rubottom 5 Dec 1932 in Greenwood, Sebastian, Arkansas 5) Grace 6) Pearl born 1909 married William Spencer DAWSON 22 Dec 1923 in Kansas City, Missouri (divorced 1928 in Fort Smith) 7) Othel 8) Harry 9) Blanche
I am particularly interested in Pearl, my great aunt. Her daughter Billie June DAWSON JOHNSON was living in Cudahy, Los Angeles, California in 1966 when her grandmother Dawson died. She had married Robert A. Johnson and had 4 daughters. I've never met any of them and I've been trying to find them for the last 12 years.
