Surnames: Rogers, Rodgers, Nix. Pardue, Robbins, Jones
Thank you for the info about familysearch.org, it was very helpful.

This is my latest collection of info on my quest to find out info on Bernice Rogers:

I’m seeking info on Bernice Lillie Rogers.

I have reason to believe, but cannot prove at this time that the Bernice Lillie Rogers buried at the Carolina Cemetery in Saline, LA is my grandmother.

Info I have at present is as follows that leads me to believe this is the case:

FACT 1: Robert N Nix, and Bernice ROGERS are listed as Father & Mother of Bobby Neil NIX per marriage book of Bobby Neil NIX & Joan Nell JOHNSON

FACT 2: Baby book of Anthony Lynn NIX, Bobby & Joan’s 2nd son lists Robert N Nix and Bernice ROGERS as Grandfather/Grandmother of Anthony Lynn Nix
(I think this info is listed on their 1st son’s baby book as well, I, Stephen James Nix, am the 3rd son)

FACT 3: Ancestry.com: California Death Index, 1940-1997 Lists Rogers as the Maiden Name of Mother of Bobby Neil NIX: ( http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=cadeath1940&am... )
Name: Bobby Neil Nix
Social Security #: 438504859
Sex: Male
Birth Date: 3 Jul 1936
Birthplace: Louisiana
Death Date: 23 Sep 1987
Death Place: Lassen
Mother's Maiden Name: Rogers

FACT 4: Bobby Neil Nix, my father, was born July 3, 1936 in Natchitoches

DOCUMENTATION NEEDED 1: I need to obtain a copy of Bobby Neil Nix’s Birth Certificate from the state of Louisiana

FACT 7: in 1936, when Bobby Neil Nix was born in Natchitoches, LA, Robert N Nix would have been 19 Years Old (1936-1917)
Actual date of birth for Robert Neil Nix is 20 Aug 1916 & Bobby Neil Nix was Born On 3 Jul 1936, difference being: 19 Years, 10 Months 13 Days

FACT 8: in 1936, when Bobby Neil Nix was born in Natchitoches, LA, Bernice Rogers would have been 22 Years Old (1936-1914)
Actual date of birth for Bernice Rogers is 05 Nov 1913 & Bobby Neil Nix was Born On 3 Jul 1936, difference being: 22 Years, 7 Months 28 Days

ASSUMPTION 1: a search of the 1930 Census for Natchitoches reveals no other Bernice Rogers, thus the assumption is the Bernice Rogers referenced above and Robert N Nix are the Mother/Father of Bobby Neil Nix.

ASSUMPTION 2: Perhaps Bernice Rogers and Robert N Nix had a child out of Wedlock?

FACT 9: Robert N. Nix is buried what I assume to be his 2nd wife at the Pine Grove Cemetery:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=27... &
buried with: Florence Elve Robbins Jones Nix: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=27...
Pine Grove Cemetery info: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~lanatchi/pinegcem.htm

ASSUMPTION 3: Florence Elve Robbins Jones Nix is the 2nd wife of Robert Neil Nix.

DOCUMENTATION NEEDED 3: Marriage and/or Divorce Records for Robert N Nix and Florence Elve Robbins Jones Nix

FACT 10: The 1940 Federal Census shows the Rogers Family in the same house as in the 1930 Census (I assume) with the following changes:
1. The Census has them with an additional Letter in their Last Name: the are listed as RODGERS instead of Rogers.
2. Pauline Pardue is a 30 year old, now listed as Pauline Rogers, and Divorced
3. Henry PARDUE is no longer listed in this household, understandably.
4. Bernice ROGERS is listed as a 26 year old Single Woman who is Divorced.
5. There is an additional Daughter of 9 Years, by the name of Dorothy L. ROGERS

ASSUMPTION 5: Bernice ROGERS was married to someone else, and divorced before the 1940 Census
