    Inez is reported as the daughter of Lola's father Walter, but this isLola's daughter.  Her obituary refers to her father as MarvinMiddleton.  Her first name on her gravestone is spelled Murriel.  Itis common in this region to pronounce the name Murriel as Merle.  Thesame pronunciaton is spelled in the census as Myrle.  In her obituary,included in her memorial, the name is spelled Merle.  This is the nameshe is given in her memorial, even though it is spelled Murriel on thegrave.

    Her maiden name is reported in the memorial as Middleton, but she isreported with the last name of Tucker in the 1930 census, as is hermother.  Her mother was reported marreid in 1924 to James Jones inFaulkner County.  This would seem to be Merle's father.  No birthrecord has been found for Merle or a death record or divorce recordfor James Jones, nor a marriage record for Marvin Middleton and LolaTucker/Jones.  Likewise no burial record has been found for eitherman.

    In the 1940 census, Merle is reported with the surname of Middletion,in her grandparents' home.  She must have begun going by this nameafter her mother married Marvin Middletion.  Also in 1940, theenumerator heard her name and entered it as Myrtle.  Merle's motherdied in 1940, but must have married Marvin Middleton between the 1930census and her death.  No divorce or death record has been found forJames Jones, whom Faulkner County marriage records reproted Lolamarried in 1924.
