Signed: Charles Friddle
Description was that he was of medium height, medium build; brown eyes, black hair [bald - certainly young for that!]. He had lost one eye - so that was apparently his disability.

In 1930, Charles Friddle Jr, age 38, was living with his parents. States he is age 38 and was 32 when married. He was marked married at the time, but wife Margaret is living a few doors away with her brother Clarence.

I suspect they divorced - online databases suggest another wife Mabel, no surname or source data. After FamilySearch placed Arkansas marriages online, I did find his marriage to Mabel, 1933.
