    Dusky's name in the 1910 census is Aduskey.  Ladusky J is the name onher grave.  In the 1930 census her name appears to be written Laduska,while in 1920 it is Duskie.  Her husband was Joseph ChesterCunningham.  In censuses he is Chester Cunningham.

    I note here that the age of Omer is given as 20.  But we know fromfamily sources that his birthday is 4 May 1908, so his age in April1930 was actually 21 (1 month short of 22).  From the birth date wehave for Omer, we can estimate that Chester and Ladusky married in1907, up to about a year and a half before he was born in May 1908.The 1930 census also reports that they were both married at age 18.This also gives us a marriage year of 1907.  Both were born in 1889.

    Daughter Jessie was listed twice in this census, one of the rareinstances I have discovered of double enumeration.  On 3 April she wasin the household of her uncle Charles Noble in DeWitt, Arkansas, thecounty seat, in LaGrue Township a few miles west of Jessie's home.She is reported as the niece of Charles.  On 12 April, the enumeratorfor Prairie Township got to her parents' home near Ethel and listedher again with them, with the exact same information.  I have notdiscovered how she is the niece of Charles Noble,  I have notdiscovered her mother Ladusky's maiden name.  This may hoed the clueto the family connections that explain her relationship to the Nobles.

    I later found them in the 1920 census.  Here I find them listed undertheir nicknames.  Edith McSwain Jenkins had told me that Ladusky wasknown as Duskie.  That is how she is listed in the 1920 census.  Herhusband Joseph Chester normally went by Chester.  In 1920 the censuslists him as Chess, as Edith says he was called by the community.
