    I found an amazing situation with this family in the 1930 census.  This family was actually enumerated twice at the same address as a whole family by two different enumerators.  This is the only instance I have found of this kind of double enumeration.  Usually it is one person in two different households where they were with different family on two different dates.  I found Jeff and Odelia at the same street address with the same information except for a couple of minor differences.

    The enumerations are included in two different enumeration districts.  This must mean that their house was just at the division between the two districts, enumerated by two different enumerators.  They apparently lived on or near a corner.  There are other street names next to them in both lists.  In the enumeration above you see their address is recorded as 4513 Collinwood St.  There are two other houses on Collinwood Street listed on the same page, but at the top, while they are listed next to last on the page.

    The addresses of these two houses are 4921 and 4936 Collinwood.  The house next to the Greens is listed as 4905 El Campo St.  The numbers of the El Campo addresses on this page run in the same sequence as the Collinwood addresses, except for the Green household, as though it was the same street or the enumerator put the wrong street name in each section.  In the second enumeration below, you will see that their address is listed as 4513 El Campo.

    The 4500 series of houses around them are also shown as on El Campo.  The neighboring streets here are Pershing and Western.  This enumeration is for District 68, and the date is incomplete, giving only the day, 28.  The Ward is 16E.  Note also that the birth state changes for Jeff's parents, reported them both born in Texas as he was.  Note the difference in real estate value reported on apparently the same house!

    Interestingly, Jeff is here reported not as a chauffeur, but a salesman for Gulf Oil.  Odelia is a nurse in both.  There is a year difference in the report of the age at which they married.

    1930 Federal Census, Tarrant County, Texas, 28 (April?), Ft Worth Ward 16E, District 68, page 105A, 4513 El Campo St, Hse #149, Fam #159
    Green, Jeff Head Owns Home $5000 value M W 27  Married at age 23  TX GA AL Salesman, Gulf Oil Company [b abt 1907]
    Green, Odelia Wife F W 27 Married at age 23  TX IL TX Nurse, Dr. Office [b abt 1907,  m abt 1926]

    Norris, Zeddie Brother-in-law M W 21 Single TX IL TX [b abt 1909]

    Zeddie (Zeddie E on the Collinwood Street entry) matches the child reported in previous censuses as Eddie.
