    Lola is reported as Married, but there is no husband in thishousehold, and no age of marriage is reproted for Lola.  Her daughterMerle (spelled Myrle here, and Murriel on her grave) is reported asWalter's daughter, and with the last name of Tucker, as is Lola.  Butthe middle initial M may be for Middleton.  These anomalies may beenumerator error.

    But another complicaiton is found in Faulkner Coutny marriage records,which report that Lola Tucker, born 1906, married James Jones in 1924. He may be the missing husband of the 1930 census.  But if so, thenMerle Inez' fatehr wa James Jones, not Marvin Middleton.  Marvin waslikely her stepfather.  No marriage record has yet been found forMarvin Middleton and Lola Tucker or Lola Jones.

    In the 1940 census, Lola's daughter is reported still resident in hergrandparents' home, now correctly reported as their granddaughter, butwith the surname of Middleton, her mother's new married name.
