  • Notes 
    •        In the 1920 U. S. Federal Census, Doris West is a 11/12 months old, white, single female. She was born in North Dakota of parents who were both born in Russia. She lives with her parent, Bertha and August, and a brother, Frank. The family lives in Binghamton Township, Barnes County, North Dakota. [WA 07.]
             In the 1925 North Dakota State Census, Doris West is a six year old, female. She is listed as a U. S. Citizen.

             In the 1930 U. S. Federal Census, Doris West is an 11 year old, white, single female. She was born in North Dakota of parents who were born in Russia. The record indicates that the parents were born in Germany. That indication is false. The 1920 Census states that they were both born in Russia. I accept that information as fact. Doris is school. She reads, writes, and speaks English. She lives with her parents, August and Bertha, and six siblings: Frank, Alice, Lyle, Florence, Ross and his twin Rusty. The family lives in Dilworth, Clay County, Minnesota. [WA 08.]

Doris was born in North Dakota and has finished the 8th grade. She was living in Riverton Township in 1935 on a farm and is living in the same place in 1940. Her employ is that of housework; in 1939 she worked 52 weeks in that employ, most likely without pay. She lives with her husband, Virgil, and a daughter, Virginia, as well as with the August West family, that of her father. That family includes August and Bertha, the parents, and children: Frank (Roy), Lyle, Ross, Rusty, Thomas, Kenneth, and Florence. The family lives in Riverton Township, Clay County, Minnesota.
