William Bobbie Muir was born about 1939 in Louisiana . He was Henry "Jack" Muir's sixth child and fifth with Henry's second wife, Armitar (Alleman) Muir. According to one of his nieces, he had a job which required him to travel around the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Supposedly, he was married a few times, or had a few partners, and left several children behind. I have heard many stories from his nieces and nephews about his life but can find no records which may confirm any details.

  2. I dont think bobbys birthday was the same as henry james. I would remember that but henry james muir was born 12/13. Last I recall of bobby was he lived in diamondhead Mississippi and a woman named Barbara im almost certain they was married. Barbara died of a brain anurisum. This was somewhere around 1992. I heard bobby moved out west. He did have a daughter I remember. Trudy was in Maryville Tennessee 20 years ago

  3. I was told as a child carol was my aunt and I always thought she was henry james sister.

  4. Carol Swafford was Eppie's daughter, Trudy's half sister, although papa raised her she was not his biological child. She is living in Maryville TN. My mom Trudy was married twice, once to Ray Huffman Jr. , (deceased) then to my real father Harold Word on March 23,1993.
