Birth of son Living HENDRON

Notes

  • She went by Lahoma.  Calling children by their middle name is a commonpractice in the Jenkins line in previous generations.

    On a list of births from her mother, Lahoma's birth date is listed as25 Nov 1914, and her death record says the same; but her grave says 14Nov 1914.  Social security and the California Death Index also havethe birth date as 25 Nov 1914.

    Lahoma graduated from Fort Cobb High School, Fort Cobb, Caddo County,Oklahoma, in 1932.  Her Graduation Program is dated 24 April 1932.

    An Oklahoma marriage record may be for our Gladys Lahoma, since thisis such an unusual combination of names.  This is an earlier marriagenot known in any family information I have seen.

    No further record has been discovered for James Elmer McCall or forhis and Lahoma together.  No record has been found for Lahoma in the1940 census.

    But we know she married Charles Robert Hendron on 07 Jan 1943 (familysources).  By 1952 She and Charles were reproted in the Monrovia,California, City Direcotry.

    Our family visited the Hendrons on a vacations in 1956, when I was 8years old.  I visited Aunt Lahoma again in 1981, when she lived alonein Oxnard, near Santa Barbara, still running her accounting businessin 1981.  She and Uncle Charles had divorced in 1970

    By 1958, they are reported in Santa Barbara, a little north of LAalong the coast.

    We know that Charles and Lahoma divorced in 1970.  In the 1966 citydirectory, Charles and Lahoma are listed at separate addresses.  Itappears they had separated by this time, and they divorced in 1970.Karen appears to be Joe's husband, but Joe is not in the directory.

    No further records are found for Lahoma until 1991.  That is the yearshe died.  Interestingly, a compilation of general directory entriesfor 1991 that indicates that she was in a Glide, Oregon, at theaddress of her son Russ.  Her death record, however, reports that shedied in Santa Barbara, California.

    A granddaughter of Lahoma contacted me in November 2008.  Joe David'sdaughter Mia Hendron Haas comments about her grandmother.  "My sisterand I, along with my mom were very close to Lahoma until she passedaway in 1991. She was a wonderful Grandmother and always loved visitsfrom us.  I think of her often."

    For some reason Lahoma's grave has the wrong birth date.  A list ofchildren's births from Lahoma's mother (given to my mother, LouJenkins) has her birth date as Nov 25, 1914, while the grave has Nov14, 1914.  Her California Death record and Social Security also havethe correct date Nov 25, 1914.  I submitted a correction to the Find aGrave memorial for Lahoma, and the Death Record with the correctinformation was added.
