    In 1940, Mary and her sister Elizabeth are back with Aunt Sue (now Susie) back in their native Arkansas, living in Little Rock.  Aunt Susie is now married to an "Religious Editor," and is working as his assistant.  At this point Mary and her sister have achieved 5 years of college education, as have their aunt and uncle.  Mary is reported as a foreign missionary, but also as living in this same house since at least 1935.  One wonders what her work was if it was "foreign."

    In the 1940 census, Mary's entry actually seems to read McSwain, Mary Bah Ah.  What the last two parts of her name ware meant to be is anybody's guess.  Her actual name was Mary Brown McSwain.
