Re: [MS] The Dutch & Leni Loggins Children.....
I don't know how far back you are looking
but yes family members went to other states to get a better job - leaving the
children with other relatives and paying
them to care for their children. The children were listed in that household
with the Head of households last name.
I looking for the Reese family in MS and
they were still little and I don't know
what name they have in 1930.
I have notes to leave behind for my family
because after 1930 all the small children
went to live with other families and none
of these families were family. I would
not have ever looked for them in that
household in 1940 when the new papers come
out. My aunt said they went to these homes
because the person did't have children but
they had money and their older family member that was caring for the died.
Today I am raising children that are not
family - I hope they will keep the last
names that I put on the forms so they can
be found later.
