Bobby Joe West was Rachel's son from an earlier marriage in Hollis. I did know him. He was born in 1924, Jan 17 and died 9 Aug 1994 in Wichita Falls, TX.
His social security number was 446-16-7603. He was younger than his step-brother, Lavell, and quite a character.

When Rachel married Joe Atkins, who ran the ice plant in Hollis, she became estranged from her family and little is known of their children.
Haven't found either Joe or Rachel Baccus Atkins in any census since 1910. - mab
