    By 1953, Verlin and his family are in Richmond, California.  I foundthis directory record before I found the 1940 census, so I hadsurmised from this directory that Verlene was Verlin and Mary'sdaughter.  This was confirmed in the 1940 census (see above).  Verleneis living in Verlin's home.  I have not identified Florence andLouise.

    By 1957 they are in San Jose, California.  There are many Briscoeshere that are not likely directly related to them.  I don't find anyof the other names associated with Verlin's previous listings.
