4. Ethal May BATTON
5. Alberta BUCKNER/BECKNER, B. 1913
6. George BATTON, b. 1928.
Nickname "Daddy Matt" by family- if this is "Matthew" (Source that said Ethel's
husband was "Daddy Matt": Barbara Pulmer)
1930 Census says father of Clyde, Clarisse, William "Bill" etc is CLORINE, not
MATTHEW. Therefore , my final conclusion based on fact is that CLORINE is
indeed Clyde's father and "Daddy Matt" must be their grandfather.
