Cynthia Anna Garman

Cynthia Anna Garman (b. 11 Sep 1912) was the daughter of Ira S. Garman (b. 4 Sep 1847) and Bertha Gertrude Newcomb (b. 1 Aug 1887). B.M. Newcomb listed Cynthia as the daughter of Ira and Bertha, and she is listed in the 1920 census as their daughter. However, according to BMN, Ira's son Raymond also had a daughter name Cynthia, born at about the same time. Cynthia was also the name of Ira's first wife (Raymond's mother). None of Ira and Bertha's other children were born in Arkansas, whereas Raymond's daughter Marie was born in Arkansas. Were there really two little girls named Cynthia, one born to the father and the other born to the son? Or was there just one Cynthia? If she was staying with her grandparents the census taker may have listed her as their daughter.
