I found the 1940 US Federal Census for San Fernando, Los Angeles County, California:
Wayne C. Strauser Head of Household age 23 Born: Kansas
Ruby Strauser Wife age 22 Born: Oklahoma
Melburn Strauser Son age 3 Born: California
Kenton Strauser Son age 1 Born: California
Neil Strauser Son age 6M Born: California
Delmar B. Dudley Bro-in-Law age 24 Born: Colorado
Chessie Dudley Sister age 20 Born: Oklahoma
Fred Dudley Newhew age 10M Born:Oklahoma
T.C. Baird Father-in-Law age 57 Born: Oklahoma
Could the TC Baird be: Tilero Chester Baird?
Hope this helps. My mom was a Baird, but from New Hampshire and Vermont.
