My granddad Lynch then moved toCarnegie, where mom grew up and Dad met  her.  All these little townsare/were near one another, and not far from Anadarko, where I was born(in 1937, by the way!) when Mike was born in Oklahoma City, where  welived for a time during WW2.  LaRhonda was born in Chickasha, where,as you know, Dad had his long-term business and where we all wentthrough school."

    In the 1940 census we finally find out what Eyline's other name was.The family info I have seen has Eyline D, as well as City directories,although the 1952 Chickasha Directory, which I found only in February2014, has her as Dorothy E.  In the 1940 census she is enumerated asDorothy I.  This makes it seem that her first name was Dorothy, notEyline.  In censuses, she is also genearally Dorothy E.  I never knewher to go by Dorothy, but these entries seem to indicate that in thisearlier time, she did.

    1940 Federal Census, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, 15 April, OklahomaCity Ward 2, District 78-108, page 7B, Hse #201, Rents $23

    Jenkins Carthal Son M W 2 Oklahoma  Anadarko, Caddo County OK in 1935

    The 1940 Oklahoma City directory gives us the name of the Dairy Budworked for.  In this directory, In this directory she is listed asDorothy E, as in the censuses.  But in later directories her name isEyline or Eyline D.

    After World War II started, both Bud and his younger brother Orvilleworked at Tinker Field Air Force Base in Midwest City (Oklahoma City). Bud and Eyline were living in the Oklahoma City area and Orvillelived with them a while during that wartime work in the City.  Bud'sson Michael Thomas was born in Oklahoma City in 1943.  They arereported in the Oklahoma City Directory in 1941 and later.  In 1941Bud is listed under his middle name Carthal.

    In 1941 and folloiwng, during World War II, Bud and Eyline were stillliving in Oklahoma City, where Bud was working at Tinker Field AirBase.  Bud's son Trent told me he remembered my father, Orville LeeJenkins, living with them during the war when Orville was also workingat Tinker Field as a Radio Repair technician.

    After the war, Bud and Eyline moved back to Chickasha, Oklahoma, wheretheir daughter LaRhonda Eyline was born.  In Chickasha Bud had aMaytag dealership next door to the City Hall and Police Department.Bud shared the building with his brother, my father Orville LeeJenkins, who ran a radio sales and repair business, until the early1950s.

    I found listings for them in the 1947 Chickasha City Directory.

    -- Radio Co (Orville L Jenkins) 312 Choctaw av

    He is listed with his wife and a separate listing for the business.Here Eyline is listed as Dorothy E.

    After Bud's death in 1955, the city directory reports her as theproprietor of the appliance store.

    Eyline's other two children are not listed.  Also listed are Eyline'sparents-in-law, Joseph Asa and Julia Virginia Jenkins.

    Thus in 1956, Eyline is a widow, but by the publication of the 1957city directory, she is the wife of Wayne Wornom.  So Eyline marriedher second husband about 1956 or early 1957.

    No other Jenkins family source has information for Eyline.  Our familylost track of her when she remarried and moved with her children andsecond husband Wayne Wornom from Chickasha to Oklahoma City, where hewas in business.  For some time before the move Wayne and Eyline ranthe Jeep dealership Wayne owned in Chickasha.

    Buck Lynch, a cousin of Eyline, found my genealogy and contributedinformation about the Lynch family.  We worked over email to extendand clarify Lynch family information, filling in gaps in what Buck hadfrom family sources.  In May 2009, Eyline's oldest son Trent, my firstcousin, contacted me.  He provided her place of birth, missing fromother sources.  Eyline was born in Mt View, Washita County (now KiowaCounty), Oklahoma.

    The Carter genealogy cited above reports that Eyline died in December1970, but Trent reported to me that she died in 1974, of a stroke.But in May 2012 I found Wayne's obituary which reports the date of hismarriage to Marita Davis as December 1970.  This agrees with the dateof death of Eyline in the Carter genealogy.  I have not found Eyline'sdeath and burial record.
