Looking for Louis Barnett who married Frances Elizabeth Veazey both from Arkansas.

+4 votes
I am looking for my great grandfather Louis Barnett who had a twin brother, I believe they were left on a doorstep. He was 1/2 Native American. France's and he had 4 girls, Ruby, Esther, Eula, and Jean. They divorced and Great granny Frances married George Hess and had a daughter, Georgia Lee. From what my great aunt Jean has told me, Louis's dad got a Native American woman pregnant and his wife raised the child. I don't know his name or his wife's name, or the Native American woman who would be my great great grandmother/father. I would appreciate any help.
