    • William's occupation was given as "Transfer", working for the "Moving Co.", but he was not actually working. Lillian and Violet are still at home, single, and going to school.

      A nephew is living with them, Beecher Higgins, single, age 30. He was born in Missouri, as was Lydia, so was likely part of her family.
