Arthur Leroy Jones md Essie Faye Cowan Shrimpton in 1939 in Ne, she was a widow with 2 children, Charlotte Shrimpton, b. 1936, Ne and Alfred James Shrmpton, b. 1938, Ne. They had 2 child in Ne, Preston James, b. 1940, and Patrick McKay Jones, b. 1941, and then apparently moved to Laclede co, MO. Arthur, Essie and Patrick McKay d. there, but what happened to Charlotte, Alfred James and Preston James?
In the 1940 census, Omaha, Ne, enumerated Apr 26, 1940, Charlotte and Alfred James are listed as "Jones" so I don't know whether or not he formally adopted them.
Thanks for any help.
