Can someone please shed light on my grandmother's last name, I ve known her to be a tucker from joiner ar. How did she become a holt before she was a Hendrix?

Joy never married a Holt. She married Elbert at age 17. Elbert's sister May, I mentioned from the 1910 census, married a Mitchell Holt. I think this is where Holt confusion comes from? May died in 1941, Elbert was the informant on the death certificate.



Joy's parents were John A Tucker and Mary Richie.

Here is Joy in the 1910 census with her mother and siblings. Her mother Mary is listed as widowed. Her husband must have died just after Joy was born or while her mother was still carrying.
