I, too, couldn’t find either Cleve or Minnie Beatrice Baize in the 1940 census. Somehow they managed to dodge the census takers that year. I did find Beatrice’s daughter Clara J. (Baize) Daugherty 1909 – 1964 enumerated in Texas with her husband Verna Noward Daugherty 1904 – 1952. Beatrice’s son, Carmon Baize b. Abt. 1918, was also caught but in Ohio County. The rest eluded the dragnet of the 1940 census.
