    This census reports that Julia and Carletta lived in the same place in 1935, so we may take it that Julia and Uberta divorced before or during 1935.

    One genealogy appearing to present family information gives us some helpful detail to know Julia.  First of all her maiden name was Powell.  According to this information, Julia died 23 days after the census.

    Her son Leroy's California death record reports that his mother's maiden name was Wynn.  I have not found any other instance of this surname.  That may mean that Powell was a first married name, but I have not seen information of a previous marriage for Julia, and she married Uberta when she was 19.  So I don't where the name Powell came from.  I have found no info on her parents..
