EDIT - You should spend some time on familysearch.org, I think. I found these results quickly. There seem to be several more hints - there are Michigan births with Luther as father, and "Alta" as mother, maybe a previous marriage. Althea may be named for her father's first wife - that sort of thing.

This indicates Carl's mother was Amanda Jordan. Althea Scott's parents - Luther Scott and Estella Barnaby(sp?).

EDIT - also, 1930 census Assyria in Barry Co., MI - (your mother was 0 years old wink) has her mother Lucy A Little - so she'd be Althea Lucille, maybe, or Lucille Althea.

Iris,  contact me!  We are gathering all of the family lines for one big project.  Would love to see what photo's you might have and information you could bring.  I have lots of photo's of Althea, newspaper clippings, etc.

i have a picture of my grandma and grandpa.
I sent you a private message via email.  Hoping you received it.  Can you verify your picture is of the same couple as that I have loaded onto wikitree?
