  • Notes 
    • The 1900 Census has Leah born in Illinois, but she was actually born in Nebraska as confirmed in the 1920 Census where she is shown married to Rich C. Anderson. Living with them is her mother Elizabeth Holston, age 58. It also shows that she as well as her mother are both nurses working on their own accounts for private families.

      In the 1925 Iowa State census we learn that Rich Anderson attended one year of college and that Leah had 12 years of education while Elizabeth had 4.
