Richard and Lula were living in Dyer, Gibson Co, TN in 1920 with two children. In Dec. 1928, 4 children were placed in Tennessee Children's Home Society in Nashville. Children were Delpha (later known as Hazel), Lonnie B. (called Paul V. on 1920 census), Charles (adopted as Charles Richards), and Viola Barber (adopted as Ruth Durrett). Father was identified as Richard Barber, hospitalized. Mother was not identified. Richard appears to have survived and is in Lake Co, TN (where younger 2 children were born) described as a widower and living with another family as a farm worker. The home described the mother as having left and presumed dead. Children and grandchildren of the siblings have found each other and are trying to reconstruct the family story.
