    • The census appears to indicate that L.D. and his family were living with Edward and Mary Goodyear, who are in their late 60's/early 70's. No idea what their relationship is to the Darks, but they are all listed as being members of family number 135.

    TX Death Certificate
    TX Death Certificate
    This may or may not be the death certificate of our L.D. Dark. There is evidence to suggest it is. First of all, not many people give hospitals their name as "L.D." instead of providing a first and middle name. This gentleman was "about 50" years old, which would have been the correct age range of our L.D. in 1935 (L.D. would have been 48). Also, the fact that he claims no relatives or residence would be feasible considering he had walked away from his family only 4 years prior. The death certificate also states that L.D. was a transient who died after being in the city just a day or so.

  • Notes 
    • It is said that L.D. abandoned his family in 1931. He told his young sons to wait on a street corner while he went into a store; he never came back out. Most of the family does not know what became of him.
