Shared note

Floyd, Roland and Frank Elkins' birth records give their mother's maiden name as Rice.

In the 1900 US Federal Census for Stockton, San Joaquin, California, 45-year-old Ohio-born carpenter Henry and his 40-year-old Pennsylvania-born wife Ada [maiden name unknown] Rice have been married 15 years and have had three children, all are living. These Illinois-born children are 14-year-old Leo, 12-year-old Verl, and 10-year-old Henry. The family is living at 523 N Grant in a rented house. The children have attended school for ten months of the past year. Everyone can read, write and speak English. Henry's father was born in Ohio and his mother in Germany; Ada's parents were born in New York; the children's father was born in Ohio and their mother in Pennsylvania.

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Modesto, Stanislaus, California, 32-year-old Missouri-born Frank and his 23-year-old California-born wife Verl [Inez Verl] have been married four years and have had two children, both are living. These California-born children are 4-year-old Floyd K and one-year 4-month old Roland. The family is living at 914 10th Street. Frank is a dealer in live stock. Frank and Verl can read, write and speak English. Frank's parents were born in the United States; Verl's father was born in Illinois and her mother in California; the children's father was born in Missouri and their mother in California.

In the California Voter Registrations for 1900 to 1916 have no dates on them but are given in order. This first entry must be about 1911 or 1912 as 1911 is the year that women were given the right to vote in California, the sixth state to approve women's suffrage. Frank Elikins, stockdealer and Verl I Elkins, housewife, and both Democrats,and residents of Modesto are registered in Modesto Precinct No. 1 (page 368). Next, Frank Elkins is a stock dealer and a Democrat. His wife Mrs. Inez Verl Elkins is a housewife and also a Democrat. Their address is given as Modesto, Stanilaus, California and they were registered in Precinct 1. This data is on page 525 with no date. Also in the same time period, but apparently later as the data is on page 655, Frank L Elkins is a stock buyer and Mrs Inez Verl Elkins is a homekeeper. Their address is still Modesto, but they are now voting in North Ceres Precinct.

In the 1920 US Federal Census for Modesto, Ceres, Stanilaus, California, 42-year-old Missouri-born Frank and his 32-year-old Verl [Inez Verl Rice] Elkins have in their household their California-born sons 14-year-old Floyd and 11-year-old Rolland [sic]. Frank and Roland have attended school in the past year. Frank is a stock dealer and farmer. Everyone can read, write and speak English. Frank's father was born in West Virginia [sic] and his mother in Arkansas; Inez Verl's parents were born in California; the children's father was born in Missouri and their mother in California.

In the California Voter Registrations for 1919-1924, Frank Elkins is a stock dealer and his wife Mrs Inez Verl Elkins is a housewife. They are living in Modesto. Both are Democrats and are registered in North Ceres Precinct (page 19). The next entry is for Frank and not for Inex Verl. Frank Elkins is a farmer and a Democrat, with an address of Box 622, Modesto. He is still registered in the North Ceres Precinct (page 240). In the next entry on page 579, Frank Elkins profession is listed as real estate and his wife, Mrs Inez Verl Elkins, is a housewife. They are living at 234 Yosemite Ave in Modesto, Stanislaus, California. Both are Democrats and registered in "Modesto No. 21 Precinct." Their next entry on page 803 gives the same information but their precinct has changed to Modesto Precinct No. 25

In the California Voter Registrations for 1926-1932 on page 141, Frank Elkins occupation is real estate and he is a Democrat. His wife Mrs. Ines Verl Elkins is a housewife and declines to state her political affiliation. They are living at 234 Yosemite and voting in Modesto No 25 Precinct. In their next registration information (page 621), Frank Elkins is a policeman and Mrs Inez Verl Elkins is a housewife, their son Roland is a sign painter. All are Democrats and living at 628-2nd Street in Modesto Precinct No. 25. Their next registration in Modesto Precinct No. 29 on page 900 shows the family living at the same address, but does not give their professions.

In the 1930 US Federal Census for Modesto, Stanislaus, California, 48-year-old Missouri-born Policeman Frank and his 48-year-old California-born wife I Verl [Inez Verl Rice] Elkins were married when he was 25- and she was 18-years old. They have in their household their California-born children, 21-year-old orchestra musician Roland and 10-year-old schoolboy Frank C [sic]. The family is living in a rented house at 628-2nd Street for which Frank pays $30 a month. They have a radio. Both Frank and Roland have worked on the last regularly scheduled work day. Neither has served in the military. Frank's father was born in West Virginia [sic] and his mother in the United States; Inez's parents were born in California; the children's father was born in Missouri and their mother in California.

In the California Voter Registrations for 1934-1938, Modesto No. 30 Precinct (page 203) shows Frank Elkins, policeman, and Mrs Inez V Elkins, housewife, are living at 406 Yosemite. Both are Democrats. The next registration on page 533 has the same information, but the next registration on page 900, shows that Roland Elkins, musician, has joined his parents at 406 Yosemite. Frank is still a policeman and Inez a housewife. All are Democrats.

In the California Voter Registrations for 1940-1944, on page 122, Frank Elkins, farmer, Mrs Inez V Elkins, housewife, and their son Roland Elkins, sign painter are living at Rt 5 Box 332, Modesto, Stanislaus, California in Jolliff Precinct. All are Democrats. The same is true for the next two entries on page 130 and 486.
