According to Charles H. Babcock's death certificate (Homer's Grandfather?), Charles died November 7, 1930, Burke Co., Waynesboro, Ga. His occupation was Dog Trainer. Spouse, Laura.
His death certificate lists a man named Simeon Bell (jr.) as the informant which means Charles' wife, Laura most likely died before Charles otherwise her name would be noted as informant.
Lloyd and Homer are now on their own with both parents gone. Year 1930. Very possible they moved on, but I too haven't been able to find them.
I searched the "True Citizen" (Waynesboro) newspaper for a death announcement, but did not find anything. By the way, Simeon Bell sr., according to newspaper accounts, was the mayor of Waynesboro when Charles and family lived there.
Is this the correct Charles and Laura?
