Looking to make contact with descendants of Roy Melvin Franklin b 1913 LA to Winton Morris (Wenton) Franklin (b 5 Apr 1890 or 27 Aug 1887 Ringgold, Bienville Parish, LA) & Johnnie Burt Corbin (2 Dec 1892 LA - 2 Oct 1966). Winton Morris (Wenton) Franklin was the younger brother of my husband's great-grandfather, Ennis Napoleon Franklin.
Winton & Johnnie Burt are both buried at Springhill Cemetery near Ringgold. They are on the 1920 census in Epps, West Carroll Parish with children Roy 7 & Pearl 2 & on the 1930 Madison Parish, LA census with children Roy 17, Pearl 13, Lula M 7 & Dorothy.
Lula was actually Lula Mae whose nickname was Mae Mae & Dorothy was called Dot. Roy married Maudel (Maudell), Pearl married Bill Jones, Lula Mae married Euell Franklin Blake.
Roy Melvin Franklin & his wife, Maudell, are found on the 1940 East Carroll Parish, LA census.
All help is much appreciated in connecting us to this part of the family. Any other descendants of Winton & Johnnie Burt are also welcome to contact us. Thanks in advance!
