Surnames: Welch, Pettit
Am looking for the parents of Paul H Welch born abt 1915 possibly in Arkansas. He was the grandson of Ida Belle Dowdle and Littleton Tuesday Welch. People may have known his grandmother as Belle Pettit. On both the 1920 & 1930 census of Hopkins County he is listed as living at Sulphur Bluff. I have not been able to discover the names of his parents.

Thank you for the information summary. Much of it I already had: some I didn't. You have helped me fill in some blank areas. I am related/sorry you aren't. Ida Belle was my great-great grandmother.

My theory is that Paul was the son of William L Welch. William died in Jan 1916 abt a year after Pauls' birth. William is buried at Sulphur Bluff Cemetery. So, the 1920 Oklahoma Census record can't be the same William L Welch. Other than that one, all the records you show are correct.

Paul married a Maybel Williams and had two daughters. For their privacy, I will not name them. I have not been able to locate either daughter nor, do I know their married names. I hope some of that family will eventually respond to these posts.
