Notes

  • "I can tie Roger L. Tripp in Phoenix in the Phoenix 1951 citydirectory to Arnold L. [Tripp] and Gladys Ione Sorter, who had a sonAlan Lester Tripp on May 18, 1938 in Phoenix. Maybe Arnold and Gladystook in Rama W. Terry and adopted him after the Terrys divorced andchanged his name to Roger Lee Tripp."

    In 1923, Arnold Sr and Irene were listed in the San Fernando CityDriectory.

    In 1930 they were enumerated in Los Angeles City.

    In 1936 Arnold was reported in Phoenix again.  But his wife is nowreported as Gladys.  This is Gladys Ione Sorter, reported by mostgenealogies, many of whom do not have his first wife Irene Brotherton. In the 1940 census they are both reported as living in the same placein 1935.  So they must have married before 1935.  Since Irene's deathrecord reports she did not die until 1953, this means she and Arnolddivorced some time before 1935.

    This Arnold Laban Tripp seems to be the son of Arnold and Gladys.  Ifound Arnold and Gladys in the 1940 Phoenix census.  Arnold's agethere matches the WWI registration I found for Arnold Laban Tripp bornin 1899 in Kansas.

    Arnold Sr died in Phoenix in 1954, survived by his second wife GladysSorter Tripp.
