Hello, Harold. I have recently been helping a cousin look up her extended family and came across an Earl Splain (sp)b. 1903, wife Lillian b. 1911, in Beaumont, TX. They are living next door to Joseph D. (Dewey) Splain and his family. Is this your Earl/Lillian? If so, do you know if/how they are related to Joseph Dewey Splain/Splane? Hope to hear from you.
