Partly due to wildly incorrect ages of children listed with Roger for the 1930 Orange County, Texas Federal census, some extra research was required in order for me to (hopefully) get this family right.
Roger's first marriage was solemnized 15 June 1918 in Orange County, Texas. The marriage record, in the form of an index, provides the bride's name was Emandie Naquin. A subsequent birth record for the couple's first child gives her name as Emondia Trahon.
For the year prior to Roger's marriage to Emondia, when he registered for the (WWI) draft in June of 1917, Roger was still in Gonzales County working his father's farm.
Roger and Emondia had two sons: Harris Lamar Lincecum (1919-2003) and Robert C. Lincecum (1920-1989). Robert preferred to spell his surname as Linscomb. Interestingly, Harris Lamar corrected his birth certificate from Linscomb to Lincecum.
There were a lot of Linscombs in Orange County during the time Roger's family was there. It will take some time to decipher them all.
I do not know what happened to Emondia, but do know Roger married again about 1928 to Bertha Peveto. This couple had three children: Julia Loraine (1928-2007), Roger Milam Jr. (1929-2000), and Charles Phillips (1930-2003).
During this time, Roger spent time working in the oil fields. After the initial boom in the Orange County area, he moved on the other things.
After Bertha died in 1976, Roger moved to Buna, Jasper County, Texas – possibly to be with (or at least close to) his daughter. Roger died there in 1980. Both he and Bertha were laid to rest at Bland Cemetery in Orange.
Are you wondering what's up with all the "letter" posts? I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge (links to official page). This challenge lasts through the month of April, with Sundays off. Each day follows a different letter prompt, in order, from A to Z. Click here to see all my letter posts on one page (in reverse order). Though this is my second year in the challenge, it's my first with two blogs. My theme here is "kinfolk direct." Versus any name from the one name study, these genealogy and history posts all involve someone to which I am related. You may follow along with me by RSS feed and other social media platforms listed at the top of the sidebar. I and other bloggers in the challenge on Twitter will also be using #atozchallenge.
I'm also participating with Southern Graves. This blog as a whole is one of my themes – telling the tales of tombstones, primarily from those found in the Southern United States and usually the State of Georgia.
Are you participating in the challenge, too? Please leave a link to your blog in the comments, I'd love to pay you a visit. Good luck to all involved!
