Notes From Karen Mazock
1920     US Census, La Salle Co. TX, Gardendale Town, 3 Feb 1920, image 1

Yarbrough       W. E.               mw       50        AR AL AL       Farmer

                        Lawrence         mw       18        AR AR AR      Farm Labor

                        Johnnie             fw        08        AR AR MO

From this, we learn a few things - Lawrence was Johnnie's older brother.  From the census, I'd guess he was probaby a half brother.  Note his mother is shown as born in Arkansas and her mother is shown born in Missouri.  By 1930, Lawrence M. Yarbrough is still in LaSalle Co., married to a woman named Vesta with a 7 month old daughter named Opal.  Johnnie isn't listed with him -- she may have married by then.  I'll do a bit more searching when I have a few moments.
