    Susanne Briggs, in email information on the Hendron family, commentsthat Charles Robert (Charlie) was very close to his sister Jane.

    From Charles N's Draft Registration for WWII, I discovered his middlename.

    Charles Newton Hendron
    Residence 428 Walnut St, Clark, Indiana
    Birth 24 Aug 1888 Jeffersonville, Indiana
    Occupation Fireman

    This tells us they are still living in the same section ofJeffersonville where they were in 1930.  That census does not give thename of the street where they live, but they are between entries forWalnut St and Chestnut St.

    It is unknown when Charles Robert moved to California, or whether hiswhole family moved.  His WWII Draft Registration record has not beenfound.  Charles and Lahoma were reported in the city directory forMonrovia-Arcadia in 1952.

    The next year they were reported in El Monte, California, which isalso in Los Angeles County.

    They were still there by 1955.

    But by 1958 they were reported north along the coast to Santa Barbara.

    In the 1960 and 1961 directory, only the second entry is there, makingit appear that Charles has closed his drafting business.

    U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989

    In 1964, Charles is listed in the Santa Barbara City Direcotry, butLahoma is not.

    In the 1966 city directory, Charles and Lahoma are listed at separateaddresses.  It appears they had separated by this time, and theydivorced in 1970.  Karen appears to be Joe's husband, but Joe is notin the directory.

    In 1969, Charles and Lahoma are together again at the same address.Karen is listed alone in this directory.

    But they divorced in March 1970.

    After their divorce, Charles and Lahoma have separate listings andaddresses.  Russell is with Lahoma.

    In 1973 and 1974, Lahoma and Joe are listed, but Charles is not in theHendron entries.  However, his son Joe is reported working at HendronAssociates, his father's business.  The third entry for Robert D in1974 may be an error for Charles and Lahoma's youngest son RussellDean.
