Ruth L Huff was 16 and Margaret D. Huff was 12. Her other daughter, Edna, was living with her father, A. G. Huff and his wife, Gertrude in Gorin, Missouri.

08 April 1940--Ruby Lee age 49, (status is "Widowed" ) worked as a power machine operator for an awning company in Kansas City, MO. She resided with daughter Ruth, age 27, who worked as a stenographer for a transport company,
