Evvie Boyd and Jerline Evans
I am looking for any information on my mother's geneolgy. Now that the 1940 census has been made public I know that her name in that census is Jerline (Gerline) Evans and she lived in Morley Mo. During the 1940 census she was 2 years old. Her mother was named Evvie Boyd (Beed) and would have passed away in 1938. Her father is rumored to have been named John Evans Jr. To the best of my knowledge I believe he was alive in 1959. My mother was raised by her grandmother Annie Boyd (Beed) who is listed as Head of household in the 1940 census. Annie had several children: DeWitt, Saritha, Alice May and Mary. It is possible that Annie's mother was named Hattie and she (Annie) may have been married to a Jessie Boyd for a while. I was always told that my mother was named Dorthea at birth and her name was later changed. In doing some initial research I see that Mary Boyd (Reed) had a daughter in 1938 as well that she named Dorothy.
Any information offered on my family would be greatly appreciated.
