My paternal grandfather's name was Guy O. Eakins, Jr., and he was born in
Erath Co, Texas on September 17, 1917 and died in Denver Colorado
on October 12, 1949. He was married to Dorothy Schafroth.
The father of Guy Jr., was of course, Guy O. Eakins Sr. He was
born on February 18, 1892, possibly in Texas. He died in Erath
Co. on July 21, 1958. His wife was Iris Elona Laney of Texas.
As for his father, I have a little information that leads me
to believe that his name was John A. Eakins, who was married
to a Mary R. Elkins (how's that for confusing!). John was born
in July 1859 in Arkansas and Mary was born in February 1864.
