Earl Massey had at least four children: Earl H "Butch" Massey Jr, Roberta (Massey) Green, Elizabeth "Lee" (Massey) Gibson, and Patricia (Massey) Ball.

Roberta is said to have been born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania around 1940 by an obituary for her. Though it is possible that she was born elsewhere.

In the obituary for Earl H Massey Jr, there are noted family in Georgia and Patricia is noted to be in or from Texas. Earl Jr was born about 1945. Roberta lived in and was buried in New Jersey along with several other family members. The family grave plot at Berlin, NJ, USA has an Earl H Massey and a Mary M Massey that might be the father and mother of Roberta.

Update: I have consulted with a descendant of Earl "Butch" Massey Jr, and she says that her great grandfather is Earl Henry Massey Sr and her great grandfather was also an Earl. Earl Henry Massey Sr's wife was Edna Blankley.
I am a relation to Earl Massey Sr's wife, Edna Blankley-Massey. I am trying to contact either Patricia Ball (TX) or Elizabeth  "Lee" Gibson (NJ). My father was Edna's brother. If you can help me, please comment to "bblank3119@gmail.com". Thank you

I am pretty sure that one of my n-great grandparents on that side of the family is Mack Massey. Perhaps Earl Mack Massey.

Also, I am becoming increasingly convinced that Roberta's first name is not technically Roberta.
This is a relatively good match based on vital statistics communicated to me by extended family members: Earl Henry Massey born Sept 3, 1918 in PA and died July 20, 1986 in NJ.

I have been told that Earle Henry Massey who married Edna Blankley had a father also named Earl.
