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."
