Annabelle and Robert

Edith Annabelle Evans is posing with her youngest brother Robert Gene Evans. They were the children of William Manson Evans and May Belle Moreland. Eighteen years separated these two. Annabelle was born on 15 August 1907 in Los Angeles, California. At the age of eighteen in 1925, the year Robert was born, Annabelle married William Douglass Pinkerton, Sr. They were married for fifty-six years and had three children. Robert was born on 10 September 1925 in Burbank, California, located north of Los Angeles and home to the long-forgotten Moreland Motor Truck Company. Robert married Ruth Evelyn Willford in 1949.

Robert Evans and Hulk Kitty


Robert Gene Evans, son of William Manson Evans and May Belle Moreland, is holding a cat, Hulk Kitty, almost as big as he is! Robert looks to be about five to six years old, which would date this photo about 1930. Robert, the baby of the family, was born 10 September 1925 in Burbank, California. In the 1930 United States Federal Census, the Evans family was living in San Fernando, California, only about fifteen minutes north of Burbank.
