    This is an Ancestry family tree of Charles Lloyd Blevins. His wife is listed as the daughter of Easter Clyde Maples and Glynna Gertrude Ingle. A Clyde and Gertrude Maples is listed in the 1940 census as having a ten year old daughter named Maxine:

    I was able to find this document on FamilySearch:
    It lists an Amy Maxine Blevins, with the alias Amy M. Gordon, who was born in 1930.
    I believe this is her grave (although it appears that she is still alive). It lists her husband as Charles Lloyd Blevins. He is listed as being born in 1933, the same as Lloyd Blevins on the 1940 Census.
    I cannot tell if Gordon is her maiden name, or if she remarried a man named Gordon after Lloyd’s passing in 1991, if this is Ninja’s grandmother
