There is a Lloyd E. Childress found at, with children born in Hennepin County, Minnesota in the 1940's. You can search that yourself and see what you think. Lloyd Edward Childress, wife Daisy White, as parents.

One of the sons, Robert Lloyd Childress, became a dentist.
Google "Lloyd Childress" and add the word Minnesota

There is a marriage for a Lloyd E. Childress in Minnesota, but doesn't sound quite like your person.
Date: 10/4/1931

He would have to be older than born in 1920.

Here is a Lloyd Childress in 1940 on the census, living in Kanabec county, MInnesota. He is living as lodger in the home of the White family. I wonder if the Daisy White is a daughter or relative of this family. Maybe - since there were children born to a Lloyd Childress and Daisy White later in the 1940's.

If it's the same Lloyd Childress who married in 1931, and if he then divorced, this could be him.

I think this is Lloyd E. Childress, buried in Kanabec County, Minnesota on;

Capt. Lloyd E. Childress
Birth: 1905
Death: 1983

Capt U S Army World War II
Oakwood Cemetery
Mora (Town)
Kanabec County
Minnesota, USA

Buried with him is Daisy M. Childress, who died in 1999.

Maybe Kanabec county Historical society has obituaries for them?

I'm not sure, but I think he might have died in Broward County, Florida. Maybe he was wintering down in Florida. It's called God's Waiting Room for a reason.

It's possible the first wife, Helen C. Burck, remarried in 1947

When I went to and found Lloyd Childress on the 1940 Census in Kanabec County, you can click on View Image on the left, and see that Lloyd Childress is a Dental Surgeon and Dentistry is his field.

It also says in 1935 he was living in Hennepin county, Minneapolis Minnesota. And he is born in Oklahoma.

Of course, this is 1940, then WW2 broke out, and his grave indicates he was a Captain in the army. So maybe using his dentistry skills - that would make sense, but with the army you never know! Anyway, his service records should also be available to you.

Thank you for all the information, this very well could be the man i'm searching for. Also if you could find more information on his children and if any of them are alive that would be helpful. You can just post that information on this thread. Thanks!
