Could you be more specific about the kind of information you're looking for? Also, what information do you already have?

The more information you can provide, and the more specific you can be with your questions, the higher the chance that others can give you the information you need.

William and Effie are in the 1920 census for Gulfport, Mississippi. At that time he was a truck driver for a packing company. Effie is shown as born in Arkansas of Arkansas parents.

I should add that next door is 19-year-old James Ray, also born in Arkansas of Arkansas parents, and he is a sailor on a steamship. So there's a good chance that he is Effie's brother if her maiden name was Ray.

Oh, and James is listed as the son in the household of Lucien Cuevas, whose wife Louisa was born in Arkansas of Arkansas parents. So Lucien is probably the stepfather to James, and the second husband of Louisa (previously married to the father of James and Effie).

John and Louisa have been married for 17 years, and Louisa has had 5 children total, with 3 surviving. Although Louisa is listed as being born in Arkansas, the 3 children are listed as having a mother born in Louisiana.
