Jerry Dean Weeks Sr1

M, #32546, b. circa 1933, d. before February 2003
Step-father*Fred Pelfrey2,1 b. 23 Aug 1893, d. 19 Feb 1970
Mother*Katy Estell Flynn1,2 b. 15 Apr 1915, d. 6 Feb 2003
Last Edited27 Aug 2017
     He was born circa 1933 at Oklahoma, USA.3
     He died before February 2003.

Census Data

     Jerry Dean appeared on the 1940 Federal Census of Maysville, Whitebead Twp., Garvin County, Oklahoma in the household of his parents, Fred Pelfrey and Kate Pelfrey.3
     In the obituary of Katy Estell Flynn who died 6 February 2003, Jerry Dean Weeks Sr was listed as predeceased.1
     The following analysis is from my personal research and reflects my attempts to consolidate information from different sources.
Jerry's relationship to Fred Pelfrey is uncleaar, but it seems he was not his natural son despite the relationship given in the 1940 census.

Fred's gravestone shows that he was "Daddy" to Fred and Veda. This may indicate that Jerry was a step-son, or that he predeceased Fred.

Katy's obituary gives her son's name as Jerry Dean Weeks, Sr., not Pelfrey as shown in the 1940 census.4
