1940 Census - Finding Families

Who is Marie Crager?

Leslie and Grace are my maternal grandparents. Sandra is my mother, although the enumerator shows her as a Crager. But who is Marie?

Leslie's parents were Thomas McMurdie and Anna  Marie Marcuson. Thomas died in 1916 and after that date I lost track of my GGM Anna. I could find no record of her in the 1920 or 1930 census. With this information I have found her in 1920 now married to Charles W Crager in Washington State. She is now using Marie, as she did in 1910, and her daughter is now Anita rather then Marie A.

More definitive research is needed, but this is a great start to a branch of the family I probably would have never found without the 1940 census.
