Re: Lennis Abshire, Paul Abshire
I found a WWII draft card that lists his place of residence as Indian Bayou, Vermilion Co. LA, and his birth date as 17-July-1888.Social Security Death Index has 17-July-1887 and that his last residence was Rayne, Acadia Co. LA.
I see him in 1940 in Police Jury Ward 5, Vermilion, with children Gilbert, Gladys and Lula Mae.
I can't see the image for 1930, just the transcription, but there's this family:
Head ABSHIRE, Lann age 42, male, married, b. LA, both parents b. LA
Head ABSHIRE, Lance age 36, female, married, b. LA, both parents b. LA
son Nathan age 17
son Gilbert age 15
son Wilson age 13
dau Glayds age 8
dau Lula Mae age 2
What was his wife's name?
This looks like them in 1920, Acadia, LA:
ABSHERE, Lams age 32 b. LA
wife Maria age 26 b. LA
son Nathan age 6
son Gilbert age 4
son Wilson age 2
Which children have you accounted for?
