    A California Death Index record provides information on Bobby Ray(Robert).  He was born into this family in 1928, but does not appearin the 1930 census.  Terry descendant and researcher Sharon Terrysuggests he and his older brother Eugene were living with an oldersibling.

    But no Bobby Ray appears in their 1930 census.
