We can't find my husbands mom's mom. My husbands mom name is Anna Louise Hines, her mom's name is what we were told is Stella lee Hannah but the only birth record we could find with Anna's birth year Dec. 27, 1947 had Anna's mother as a no first but last name as McLaughlin. His dad's name is Earl Hines not sure about birth year though.

Sent you the obit for Stella Hannah. Her maiden name does appear to be McLaughlin, as shown by all the listings of her children in the California Birth Index:

Anna Louise Hines 27 Dec 1947 Female Mclaughlin Kern
Thomas Hines 6 May 1942 Male Mclaughlin Sacramento
Linda Sue Hines 2 Dec 1946 Female Mclaughlin Kern

Based on the obit stating she has a sister named Betty, and was born in 1924 in OK, this may be the family in 1940:

FamilySearch.org has a California Death Index that shows a child (whose parents MAY be Earl and Stella) who died young:

Name: Bobby Earl Hines
Event Type: Death
Event Date: 14 Jan 1944
Event Place: Kern, California, United States
Birth Date: 18 Dec 1943
Birthplace: California
Gender: Male
Father's Name: Hines
Mother's Name: Mclaughlin

There are two men named Earl Hines in the SSDI who received their SSN in OK (same state in which Stella was born) and died in CA. One was born 1908, d. 22 July 1996 (He would have been 16 years older than Stella. Interestingly, his last place of residence was Atwater, CA - same town that Thomas Hines lived in.) The other, Earl Robert Hines was b. 28 Sept 1921, d. 20 Jan 1985 and was much closer in age to Stella. His last residence was North Hollywood.

Thank You so, so much!!! :) Now I have a new concern my hubby's mom's dad name is Earl Hines, I have found one that was born in 1908 in OK by that name but that would of made Stella & him 16 yrs apart in age but back then that didn't matter much but just wondering if I got the right person. Don't know much more than his name and that there was suppose to be Indian Blood in the family. See my husband mom Anna left my husband's dad Roland Jerome Kendrick when my husband was 3 yrs. old & his sister was 4 yrs.old & he hasn't got to see any of the family since.
