    I found a set of memorials on Find a Grave for a Clarence and LovelliaJenkins in Borger, Texas, that match our Clarence and Louvelliaclosely.  There are no details on birth places or parents to confirmdefinitely.  Clarence's middle name here is Burl.  the only otherindication of his name is the initial E, reported in the 1930 census.Otherwise I have found no information on Clarence's middlle name.  Thedetails here led to the discovery of Clarence's death certificatewhich confirmed that Clarence Burl is the son of Cullen and Ada DycusJenkins.
