A Childs family research collaborator found Eppa (Swan) Child's obituary in the 28 February 1975 Time-Picayune. Is May Swassard Edna Mae Childs? And who is Carol Swassard? Is she the same person as the Carol Swafford mentioned in Henry "Jack" Muir's obituary? Did Eppie marry or have a relationship with a man named Swafford in between the death of her first husband and Henry "Jack" Muir? So many questions remain.
