  • Notes 
    • I found information on Leslie W starting in 1942 where he was living in Spanaway. His wife Nancy C shows up in 1947(but remember the war years books were missing). Leslie worked as a janitor from 1951 until 1954. In 1956 he was first listed as a barber and then only for the last two years of his life. Nancy was listed as an apartment manager in 1957, but beginning in 1959(after Leslie's death) she was a nurse for an R. L. Stephens. She was no longer listed after 1963 and there was no obituary listed for her..

      Had a sister that died around the age of 7
