Hello Jeffrey, Thank you for answering. This is just the information I needed. I'm planning a research trip in a couple weeks and will definitely stop at the Library, Museum (if open) and check the school district for information on the children.
The family you found is the family I was looking for. I thought they were living in town and not on a roural route. I'll have to find out where their home was located and see if I can get a picture, if the house is still there. I believe the family moved before the end of the 1950s.
