How the houses my Grandparents lived in look today-- Part 1

Thank You,  Grandma Cooke for gluing the envelopes in your scrapbooks.    This helped me to determine where you lived at different times by checking the postmark and address.  Also a big thank you for thinking that in front of the house was the best place to have a picture taken.

Talking with a friend earlier I realized that while I had the 1940 Census Entry for Conway Twitty(Harold Jenkins) that I did not have Loretta Lynn's 1940 Census entry......and so I searched and found...
1940 Census entry for 7 yr old Loretta Lynn who was born Loretta Webb.
Shown here in Johnson Co KY Magistrate Dist. 2 Butcher Hollow with her parents Melvin & Clara.

Lefty Frizzell in 1940 Union Co Arkansas


The following snippet of the 1940 census shows William Orville Frizzell living in the household of his parents in Union Co Arkansas's El Dorado Township. He was my Dad's 6th cousin.

They shared common GGGG Grandparents: Nathan Frizzell & Margaret Deason. For those interested...he was born in Corsicana, TX and not Saginaw, Michigan.  :-)  You can find his birth certificate at FamilySearch.org as well as the corrected birth certificate from the same day which corrects birth time from 12:35 to 12:30 and lists the city along with the county of birth.
