In 1940 Marion F. Henson and his family are living in Caruthersville when the census was taken.
Marion was 52 years old born in Missouri with his wife Clara 47 years old according to this record. They had 3 daughters in the household Frances 19yrs, Bernice 12yrs and Bertha who was 8yrs old.
In 1930 this family was living in Portage, New Madrid County, Missouri. The children were John W., Etta M., Dorca or Dorothy, Willa F., Nettie and Anna B. Living next door was William Henson who was 63 yrs old born in Illinois.
What happened to this Henson family? I did find a death certificate for Nettie but I have been unable to find any other information regarding this family. I need the maiden name for Clara, was she Clara Shirley? Who did the girls marry and where are they now?
Any help would be appreciated.
