  1. I am Charles Gillette, Ottawa Ks. My wife Sue Gatlin was a childhood friend of Velva Myers. I would like to find out about Velva. I find her in 1954 at 503 Wabash as Mrs Velva Gordinier. She disappeared after that. Please help we find out what happened to her. Thanks, it means a lot to Sue and I.

      Citing this Record
      “United States Census, 1940,” index and images,¬†FamilySearch¬†(https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VR26-CQ4 : accessed 27 Oct 2012), Velva Myers in household of Harold Myers, Ward 7, Topeka, Topeka City, Shawnee, Kansas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 89-59, sheet 14A, family 308, NARA digital publication T627, roll 1261.
      I never knew Velva or her parents, just Helen Meyers that married my cousin, Roy Leonard Nelson, Jr. and they resided in Topeka in 1951-1972 on Girard Street.
      Sorry, I can’t help you, Sally
