Shared note

In the 1930 US Federal Census for Canyon, Randall, Texas, 46-year-old Nancy is a widow, running a boarding house at 304 24th Street,even though no boarders are listed on the census. Nancy owns the house, valued at $2500, which is near the West Texas State Teachers College, a source for boarders. She had been married for 16 years when her husband, Herbert Ditmars McCaslin died. In her household are her daughters, 15-year-old Lois B, 11-year-old Mary E and 6-year-old Elizabeth. Edgar H Noble and his family are living around the corner at 2302 2nd Avenue, but I have not found a relationship between Nancy and Edgar.

In the 1940 US Federal Census for Canyon, Randall, Texas, 54-year-old [sic], Texas-born widow Nancy [Noble] McCaslin [transcribed as McCoslin] and her 16-year-old, Texas-born daughter, Elizabeth are living on 6th Ave, no address given, for which Nancy pays rent of $20 a month. They were living here in 1935. Nancy has completed one year of college. Elizabeth has completed three years of high school. Nancy is employed as a college dormatory matron, has worked 52 hours in the past week and 52 weeks in 1939. She earned $1,200 in wages or salary. Elizabeth is a student who is not looking for work. Neither has a source of outside income.
