Wm E Lynd Sr had no known children with 1st wife Sallie nor Josephine Skidmore.

Yes, this does not bring conclusion as to what happened to the 2nd child of Josephine Skidmore nor E B Drinkard. Just know that I could not find them in 1920 census and reportded to be living in Dallas when she married W E Lynd in Arkansas in 1922.

Robert Drinkard could have been mistaken on his passport application about his father's death date.
