Notes from Betty Smithson: See sources below to trace Aurilla in censuses. Birth and death records listed in sources.
My older cousins, Beth Ann DeBolt Halacy and Zona Spurlock Greenleaf knew of Aurilla. My sisters, brother and I never knew of her. Her parents divorced soon after she was born and she lived in Texas with her mother and lost contact with the Spurlock family.
My sister, Virginia Spurlock Gardner spoke with Judy Phillips, our cousin and daughter of Gladys, and gathered information about Aurilla and Betty. Judy said she was first married to a Mc Gowan and second to Thane.
