Jesse Brisson (help and information)
It would appear the full name Blanche Berndt Mehaffey would apply to her mother Blanche (nee Berndt).
Though it would appear our Blanche's middle initial was "J", if her marriage license/certificate and the 1930 Census are to be believed.
I personally identified her appearances in A Sailor Papa, He Forgot To Remember and Going To Congress.
