    Note that Walter and Emma's daughter Lola is reported as married, but is listed here under her maiden name, and no husband is reported.  Her daughter Myrle (Merle) is reported as Walter and Emma's daughter, probably due to a misunderstanding by the enumerator.  Myrle is also listed as a Tucker.  In 1940, their granddaughter Merle (named Myrtle by the enumerator) is living with them.  Whereas in the 1930 census, Merle was listed under her mother's maiden name, she is now listed under her mother's new married name of Middleton.
