    Roy had his own lisitng in the City Direcotry in 1938

    His parents may have already moved to Canada by this time, sicne theydo not appear in this City direcotry.  Roy is the only indivdiaulwiththis surname inthis year's directory.  Tehre is one other personthat I cannot identify as related to this family, with the name ofArthur Loven.  Our family of Lovins sometimes appear wih this spelingof the family name.  The spellings of Loven and Lovin alternate forseveral lines of this surname.

    Roy is identified on his sister-in-law's immigration card whenentering Washington from British Columbia.  His name there is given asR G L:ovin, address Prince Rupert, BC.  I suspected that ther reasonhis middle initial was J on his birth record and written as G in Ann'sborder crossing record was that his midlde name was Gene, but spelledas Jean, normally the spelling for a girl.  I confirmed this when Ifound another voting record with his fullname.
