Yep, he's the one I found but thought he died. Think I had the wrong guy.
Betty Jo Miller (B 09/28/1929 in Watauga County NC-D 09/10/2000 in Modesto CA) M 1st Richard W Hixson (B 11/19/1928 in Modesto CA-D 07/1972) on 04/14/1951 in San Diego CA, 2nd Leon F Madrigal (B 03/18/1925-D 11/24/1998 in San Diego CA) in 1965 and Divorced 01/1969 in San Diego CA
Stephen Coleman Hixson (B 12/11/1952 in San Diego CA
I don't understand why Leon Madrigal was mentioned and thought maybe I had the wrong Betty Hixson. SSA could have made an error on their records? Because she went by Betty Jo Hixson up to her death and also is mentioned as Betty Jo Hixson in Odenia's obituary in 2008. The obituary said Odenia was survived by Dick Hixson. He was alive 8 years ago. If it's true that she married Leon, they were only together 4 years and maybe she took the Hixson name back and used that? I don't know maybe she took his name back because of Stephen because in 1969 he was only 17 and maybe she thought it would be better for her to have the same last name as her son. Very strange. Can't find where her and Dick divorced or remarried. Please tell me what you think.
