The children in the front row are his niece Ann Bryant, and his kids Doris and Roy Jr.

According to Pat Bishop's information: Roy's wife was Antoinette and his son, Roy Jr, married Nan Howell and had daughter Melisa Dawn Warmath. Melisa Dawn in turn married James Michael Thornton, son of B. Ray Thornton. Roy's daughter Doris married Louis Sessions and had daughter Cheryl Sessions.

1910 census, Madison County, TN, district 15: Albert S. Warmath, age 40, born in TN of parents born in TN, m1 for 18 years, occupation: dairyman.

1917 draft registration: Roy Avery Warmath of Jackson TN, born 9-22-1894 in the 16th District of Madison County, TN. Occupation: office clerk (employer illegible to me). Single. Of medium height, medium build, with blue eyes and dark hair.

1920 census, Tippah County MS, beat one: Sid Warmath, age 49, born in TN but this time mistakenly his father is listed as from NC, farmer. Wife Laura, age 49. Daughter Laura B, age 18. Daughter Estelle, age 15. Daughter Sidney, age 10. Son Clinton, age 7. Daughter Gertrude, age 5. Daughter Dorothy, age 4. The next household is Roy Warmath, age 25, single, born in TN of parents born in TN, farmer, whom I presume is the oldest son.

1930 census, Memphis City, New York Street: Roy A. Warmath, age 34, married at 29, born in TN of a father born in TN and a mother listed merely as born in the US, occupation: assistant delivery superintendent for a dairy. Wife Antoinette, age 28, married at 22, born in TN of a father born in TN and a mother born in MS. Daughter Doris M, age 2 years four months, born in TN. Also in the household, Louise M. Dunlap, age 54, widowed, "Mother-in-law" born in MS of a father born in TN and a mother born in MS.

(based on the mother-in-law in the house in 1930, I looked up Antoinette Dunlap and found in the 1920 census, Memphis Ward 14 the household of WH Dunlap, age 43, born in TN of TN parents, occupation: druggist in drug store. Wife Louise, age 42, born in MS of a father born in TN and a mother born in MS (that matches) and daughter Antoinette Dunlap, age 18, born in TN of parents born in TN, occupation: operator for telephone co. Could not find them in the 1910 census.
