This is the application for a Social Security number filled out by my paternal grandmother, Iva Illinois (Townsend) Wallen in March of 1958. "Noy" was already grandmother to 5 children at the time she filled this out. My grandfather deserted her about 1954 and they divorced sometime in the early 1960s.
Grandmother Noy lived with her daughter Jeanne for the rest of her life. Aunt Jeanne had divorced in 1951 and neither woman ever remarried.
