Charles Edward Tawater also had a daughter with Myrtle Oakes, her name was Gloria Grace Tawater born May 17 1931, she is my grandmother and still alive, in Bakersfield California she will be 80 this year (in 2011). Any curious descendant may contact me directly at Cdean5@bak.rr.com
Tawater, Gloria Grace born 5-17-1931, F, to Myrtle Grace Oakes and Eddie Tawater
As you can see above what I copied from the GenWebBirths site Charles edward transposed his name to "Eddie Tawater" possibly to keep my grandma a secret? We know that his real name was in fact Charles Edward Tawater. My grandmother did meet him once and some of her sisters/brothers. She traveled by train back to texas with her 2 children Rodney & Caroline. I never could find any of her brothers and sisters becauseapparently she knew them all by their middles names only they were introduced as Leon, Charles, Christine, & Morene.
