  • I first found Chester in the census of 1920 with his parents, when heis 13.

    1920 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 3 February, LaGrueTownship, District 12, page 12A, Hse #247, Fam #257
    Dumond, Lewis J Head  Rents farm  M W 33 AR AR AR Farmer [b abt 1887]
    Dumond, Katie  Wife F W 33 AR AR AR [b abt 1887]
    Dumond, Chester C Son M W 13 AR AR AR [b abt 1907]

    By 1930 he has married and is living next door to his widowed motherKatie Dumond.

    1930 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 17 April, LaGrueTownship, District 17, page 10B, Point DeLuce Road, Hse #218, Fam #220
    Dumond, Chester C Son M W 24  First married at age 16 [abt 1922] AR ARAR [b abt 1906]
    Dumond, Roberta Wife F W 17 First married at age 15 [abt 1928] AR ARAR
    Dumond, Dortha L Dau F W 6 yrs 11 months AR AR AR

    Chester and his wife Roberta have one daughter Dortha L, who is almost7 years old.  This seems to indicate that Chester and Roberts marriedabout 1922.  But the marriage information contradicts this.  We aretold that Chester was 16 when he first married, and that Roberta was15.  But Roberta is only 17 now, so she got married only about 2 yearsbefore.

    But Chester is 24, 8 years after he was first married.  This meansthat Chester was married in 1922, and his first wife had this daughterDortha, but died before 1928, when he married Roberta.

    His obituary provides many details about his life and family,including his full name and date and place of birth.  Note how thepaper spells the family name.  It gives the marriage date for Chesterand Roberts as 29 December 1926.  So this is only 3.5 years before the1930 census.  If this age is correct for Dortha (actually Dorothy,according to the obituary), this also indicates she was the child ofan earlier wife of Chester.
