Eva Allman and Jake Thompson Jr. were the parents of daughter Paralee Thompson Lindley (14 Apr 1908 - 17 Dec 1981) who was married to Bernice Lindley. Paralee was born in Texas and died in Groesbeck, Limeston County TX[1] The familysearch link does not provide this additional information but the attached image does[2]

Eva & Jake were married 2 Jun 1907 in Groesbeck, Limestone County [3] and they appear on the 1910 and 1920 censuses in Limestone County, TX together with daughters as follows in 1910[4]: Jake Thompson Head M 21 Texas Eva Thompson Wife F 24 Texas Paralee Thompson Daughter F 2 Texas

and 1920[5] Jake Thompson Jr. Head M 30 Texas Eva Thompson Wife F 33 Texas Pearlie Thompson Daughter F 11 Texas Allman Thompson Son M 9 Texas Luther Yarbrough Grandson M 4 Texas

Between these 2 times, on June 5 1917, Jake registers for the draft of WWI indicating he has a wife and 2 children, was born in Oletha and was a farmer.[6] Who Luther is the grandson of is not clear, but Jake's father Jake M. Thompson also appears widowed in the 1920 census in Limestone County (born TX 1852, parents from Alabama)[7].

In 1930 the family appears with only Jake Jr, Eva and Allman; no sign of Luther and Pearlie (Paralee as on her death certificate) is married to Bernice Lindley[8] and in 1940 with no children.[9]

Jake Jr. passed away 12 June 1971, his last place of residence was Limestone, TX. The Social Security Death Index confirms his birthdate of 2 Sep 1888.[10] and[11] Jake was widowed at his death so Eva pre-deceased him.
