    • Another 1930 census has been located for Bessie, Lenora and Evelyn Dahl, dated 7 days earlier (17 Apr 1930) reflecting all living in Salt Lake City on 251 East on 3rd South with Evelyn as the head and renting a home for $57.50 a month. Bessie is 18, Lenora 20 and Evelyn 40 with the later reflected as being married although no mention of husband. Additionally, Evelyn's father is listed as being born in Illinois and mother in Utah.

      There is a discrepancy in ages for all but Lenora between the two census documents. Matilda Evelyn Dahl is shown on the 24 Apr census as 52 and Evelyn as 40 on the 17 April Census. Bessie is listed as being 15 on the later census and 18 on the earlier census. All are born in Utah on both census documents. Matilda's father is documented as being born in Illinois on both census documents.

      It is unclear at this time whether the individual census documents are for the same family. [5]
