Birth*15 February 1912Evelyn Miller was born on 15 February 1912 in Eastland, Eastland County, Texas.3
Name VariationHer full name was Evelyn Jean Miller.3
(Daughter) Census US 192016 January 1920Evelyn was enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 16 January 1920 in the household of her parents in Decatur, Wise County, Texas. She was 8 years old and had attended school within the census year.2
(Daughter) Census US 19302 April 1930Evelyn was enumerated on the 1930 census taken on 2 April 1930 in the household of her widowed mother at 418 W. Commerce Street, Eastland, Eastland County, Texas. She was 18 years old and had attended school within the census year.7
Marriage*She married first, as his first wife, Larry Lorraine Powell, son of Wilbur G. Powell and Mattie Larkin, probably in Texas.8,9
Arrested and Charged*13 November 1938Her husband, age 25, and Rex Holt, 24, both residents of Cisco, were arrested on 13 November 1938 in Fort Worth, Texas, and charged with automobile theft and armed robbery of a service station. A third man, Pete Eudy, who had left the car a few minutes before Powell and Holt were arrested, later surrendered to police. The two men initially in custody readily admitted their part in the robbery, blaming whisky for their complicity. The men had stolen the car in Cisco, Eastland County, Texas and driven it to Stamford, in Jones County, Texas where they committed the robbery, then were apprehended with the car in Fort Worth.10,11,12,13,14
Criminal Conviction*4 May 1939Her husband's trial in connection with the Stamford service station holdup on 13 November 1938 began on Thursday, morning, 4 May 1939 in District Court, Anson, Texas. Powell was the last of the three men to appear in court. Both J. M. Eudy and Rexford Holt had been found guilty of armed robbery and had been sentenced to five years in state prison. Powell pleaded not guilty and jury selection was completed at 11 o'clock.

The State called only two witnesses, the owner of the station that was robbed, and a customer who was inside the station at the time. The owner was the first witness examined, and testified that three men entered his station the night of the holdup but was unable to positively identify Powell. The customer, who was inside the station talking to Pete Eudy, who had previously been convicted in connected with the holdup, definitely identified Powell as the third man. It was established that J. M. Eudy was also called "Pete" Eudy. He said that Powell and Rexford Holt, who had been convicted the previous day, followed the owner into the station after their car had been serviced, and the holdup followed immediately. The customer testified that Powell was the one who locked him and the owner in the men's washroom while Eudy kept them covered at pistol point and Holt looted the cash register.

The jury deliberated only 30 minutes, and returned a verdict of guilty, making Powell the third and last man convicted in the holdup. He was sentenced, as were his two accomplices, to five years in state prison.10,11,12,13,14

Evelyn was 28 years of age and married, had completed her education through the 2nd year of high school, and did housework for a private family. She had lived in Eastland County in 1935, although probably still with her husband, not with her mother. Evelyn's surviving son, Larry Lorraine Powell, was 4 years old.15
Divorce*Evelyn (Miller) Powell and Larry Lorraine Powell were divorced, possibly as early as 1940, and certainly before Evelyn married her second husband about 1943. Larry remarried in 1948.16,17,18,19,20
