    The name and age of Mimie (Mimi?) and Eason are confusing.  The motherof both was born in Alabama, matching Roxie's birth state.  It lookslike they would be her children from her first marriage.  But withMimi (Mimie) age 11 here, Roxie would have been about 15 when Mimi wasborn and thus married at about 14.  That is possible.  George andRoxie were married about a year after Eason's birth.  These two Ruffinchildren are reported as the children of George, not hisstep-children.
