Shared note

In the 1910 US Federal Census for Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana 52-year-old merchant Richard Osborn is the owner of a candy store. He and his 52-year-old wife Alice [Mary Alice McCasland] have been married 31 years and have had two children, but only one is living, 20-year-old Ruth F [Osborn] Johnson. Ruth married 21-year-old laundry wagon driver Oscar Johnson in 1908 and they have a one-year-old son, Roger L Johnson. This two generation family is living in a rented house at 1322 Olive Street.

In the 1920 US Federal Censu for San Bernardino, San Bernardino, California, 31-year-old Rail Road Switchman Oscar P Johnson, his 30-year-old wife Ruth [Osborn] and their son 11-year-old Roger are living in a rented house at 872 Kansas(?). This residence is close to that of Fred Reynolds.

Oscar Johnson apparently died before 1930 as Ruth is married to Fred Reynolds in that year.

In the 1930 US Federal Census for San Bernardino, San Bernardino, California, 63-year-old Railroad Conductor Fred A Reynolds is married to 39-year-old Ruth F [Osborn Johnson]. This is a second marriage for both of them as Fred was 24 at the time of his first marriage and Ruth was 17 years old. Living with Fred and Ruth is her son, 21-year-old Roger L Johnson, and Ruths 73-year-old widowed mother whose name is listed incorrectly as Olive M Osborn. It should be Mary Alice Osborn. This three generation family is living at 850 H Street in a house Fred owns, which is worth $5,000. The family has a radio.
