Birth*10 December 1915Verna E. Dowis was born on 10 December 1915 in Los Angeles County, California.1,5,6
Name VariationThe name on her record of birth was Verna E. Dowis, and her given name became Vera after her adoption.5
(Daughter) Death1919She was about 4 years old when her father died around 1919 at about age 40, leaving Verna's mother with three very young children.4,3
(Daughter) Census US 192029 January 1920Verna was enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 29 January 1920 in the household of her divorced mother in Township 5, Fresno County, California. She was 4 years old.3
Relationship Note*before 1930Her biological parents were James Dowis and Lyndall R. (Carner) Dowis, and she was adopted before 1930 by Earl Howard Welcome, a physician and surgeon in Downey, Los Angeles County, California, and his wife, Pearl Marguerite (Liebmann) Welcome.3,4,2
(Adopted Daughter) Census US 19309 April 1930Vera was enumerated on the 1930 census taken on 9 April 1930 in the household of her parents at 119 East 5th Street, Downey, Los Angeles County, California. She was recorded as their adopted daughter, was 14 years old and had attended school within the census year.2
Marriage License15 December 1934A marriage license was issued on 15 December 1934 in Yuma County, Arizona, to Joseph A. Snyder, age 25, a resident of Los Angeles, California and a native of Washington, and Vera Welcome, age 21, a resident of Downey, California and a native of California.7
Marriage*15 December 1934She married first, as his first wife, Joseph Anthony Snyder, son of Charles A. Snyder and Maggie Boyd, on 15 December 1934, the same day their license was issued, in Yuma County, Arizona.8,9
Residence*1 April 1935On the 1940 census, Vera reported she had lived in Phoenix, Arizona, on 1 April 1935.10
Divorce*Vera and Joseph A. Snyder separated, and were probably divorced, very soon after their marriage. On the 1940 census, Vera reported she had lived in Phoenix, Arizona on 1 April 1935, and Joseph, who was enumerated in San Francisco, California, in 1940, reported on the census that year that he had live in Los Angeles, California on 1 April 1935. Vera probably married her second husband before October 1935 when she gave birth to a daughter whose birth registration recorded her surname as STEVENS, the surname of Vera's second husband. Joseph married his second wife in November 1939.10,11,12
Marriage*She married second, as his first wife, James Emery Stevens Jr., son of James E. Stevens and Edith M. Whitaker.13
(Mother) Research NotesThe birth registration for Emajean Stevens, who was born on 12 October 1935 in San Diego County, California, recorded her surname as STEVENS, and James Emery Stevens Jr. certainly raised her as his daughter. Her conception, however, probably occurred in January 1935, about a month after her mother, Vera Dowis Welcome's, marriage to Joseph A. Snyder, whom we suspect was likely Emajean's biological father.14,10
Census US 1940*8 April 1940Vera E. and James E. Stevens Jr. were enumerated on the 1940 census taken on 8 April 1940 at 822 E. 5th Street, National City, San Diego County, California. James was 26 years of age and worked for wages as a clerk in a privately owned retail grocery store, and Vera was 24 years of age and worked doing her home housework. James had completed his education through the 1st year of College, and Vera had completed her education through the 2nd year of College. James had worked 60 hours the week before the census was taken, and 52 weeks, for an income of $1,300, in 1939. They owned their house, which was valued at $1,500, and was not on a farm. On 1 April 1935, James had lived in National City, California, and Vera had lived in Phoenix, Arizona. Three children were enumerated with the couple in 1940. Their daughters, Emajean and Verna Merle, were ages 4 and 2 years, respectively, and their son, James III, was one year old.10

Residence*1941James E. Stevens Jr., a clerk at the A & P Tea Company, and Vera, were listed at 822 E. 5th Street, National City, in the City Directory for San Diego County, California, for the year 1941.16,17,18,19
Divorce*Vera and James E. Stevens separated, and were probably divorced shortly after the birth of their daughter, Penny. Vera moved away, leaving all of the children with James.20
Marriage*8 October 1960She married third, as his first wife, Joy A. Andersen, son of Anders Andersen and Else Marie Olsen, on 8 October 1960 in San Diego County, California. Their marriage was indexed twice, once with her maiden name of Welcome, and once with her previous married name of Stevens.21,22,1
Divorce*Vera and Joy A. Andersen were divorced, although we don't know how long after their marriage. Joy married a second time in 1986.23
