Re: Ray Tapp b. ca. 1905
Roy B. Tapp 32 and Margaret L. Tapp 24 are on the 1930 census in LA county, ED 255.
Ages at marraige were 29 and 21 respectively - approx 1927. His occupation, salesman/newspaper, her occupation clerk/dept store.
He was born in KS, parents in IL, IA.She was born in Washington, parents in OH, OH.
I have looked at each of the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census for a Roy Tapp born in Kansas with no luck.I also looked for Roy born ca 1897 but didn't find a good match.
I've also looked at the WWI Draft Registration Cards, the CA Death Index 1940-1997, the CA birth index using Tapp/Latimer, the SSDI (Social Security Death Index) ...
I'm wondering if Roy might have been a middle name or nickname.
There are several possible fathers born in IL but I'm not able to easily match to a son or a wife born in IA. I can rule out my own family, who relocated from KS to LA in 1914 but has no IL connection.
What is your connection to them?
