I spoke with one of the children who said that they lived in St. Louis mostly during the winters then the mother & children would return to the farm to raise a big garden during the summers. The father worked for the railroad so did lot of moving around. Anyway, she thought they might be enumerated in Crawford Co. MO but I have gone through the files film by film for the district & they aren't there. So....I have started going through the St. Louis files for different blocks they might have lived in but still no luck so far. Good idea about the phone directory though, I'll have to look into that one. Thanks
PS: I know they didn't move to the Crawford Co., MO farm permanently until 1947.
