I never met my Uncle Rolly, my father's elder brother.  He left Junction City KS in the 1920s and was heard from in Los Angeles via a postcard.  There was no further contact with the family.  Speculation included possible incarceration.  I wonder if anyone knows if he married, moved, or?

I don't see much on Rollie, was he Roy White b. 1895 Kansas? Showing in this document he is living with 2 people..(maybe stage names?) One that says "SHE" is married and "He" is married.. Maybe his wife who used a stage name? Los Angeles and all. both are married and living together.

 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9R64-LPJ?i=69&cc=1488411 Maybe research this Eleanor Archer in Los Angeles might be helpful? I don't understand all those lines through or notes next to the names there.. anyone? Then there is a Rollie White who's SON  married in the 1947 Mother was Romola M Lyghtle... The SON listed in the marriage  Vernon Willard White.  Married Ethel Mae Vincent.  A second marriage for Vernon seven years later? https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-893H-PW3T?i=1099&cc=1804002

 

Also Vernon passed and is buried in Whittier. Many from Los Angeles moved to Orange County Calif and are buried there..
