    The most recent news I'm aware of was the January 2019 paternal DNA match with the Wood family members (cousins) who were not previously aware of her existence.

    (edited to correct spelling - it's "Wood" not Woods.)

    Someone else clipped this from the newspaper, so I'm thinking the powers that be are aware of it. But I was wondering if this was one of the Woods' sons? Was he a reverend? If this is his him, he, a married man, took off with a 20 year old woman. If it is him, wouldn't the state troopers have her name in the report, if the report still exists?
    Cause if it is him, and he's EDJD's father, I'm thinking this could be EDJD's mother. The timing is about right.

    Would anyone be able to confirm this is Clifton M. Wood from EDJD's paternal line?

    If it is the same Clifton Wood, I would hope investigators would have dug deeper into who these women were. Someone in the family must remember this, even though it was decades ago.
    Also, I didn't want to post any subsequent articles other than the original article I posted until I confirmed they are one and the same because the second charge was a bit more serious, and this is a family friendly site.
    I didn't find an article about the verdict.

    I'm still intrigued by the Wood & Blevins connection, EDJD resembles the Blevins sister's Soooooo much !

    How did the Blevins sisters figure into this again?

    Estella Mae married a Wood twice. I read the information & seen the photos back in this thread.
    I honestly can't figure out how the "Carr" surname is attached to the Blevins families yet, if it actually is.

    There's another sister that really resembles EDJD, Ancestry yearbook photo.

    It sure does sound like you have the correct Reverend.

Sadly, I can't find a photo for the sister , EM Blevins who married AB Wood.

    I agree. She looks like the police photos. Shirley looks like the more glamorous photos of EDJD.

    Wow!!! @Alleykins that is awesome

    One possibility is that the recent newspaper articles about her relative found on GedCom misused the term "second cousin" when referring to the daughter of EDJD's first cousin. It's super common for people to call any cousin other than a first cousin a second cousin. We do it in my own family, but really, all descendants of your first cousin are still your first cousins, just once removed, twice removed, etc. If that was the case, Tina is indeed her plain old first cousin, and one of the brothers is the father.

    Does anyone know who the genealogist working on EDJD's case is? It might get better results for you to just email him/her directly with what you have found. Again, amazing work!

    Great find. Don't know how I missed it, so thanks.
    Even though he was cleared, I wonder if he fathered a child with the 13 year old girl? If so, that may explain a possible adoption.
