Other Info: In January 1933 Marjory Lewis and Eugene Swenson used Carolyn's little wagon to take a load of greens and vegetables to the Kid Kolony.  

Post-Colony History: Her father died in 1932, but sometime prior to 1940, her mother married again to Burl Chapin because in 1940, both she and Carolyn were living with him in Hidalgo, New Mexico where Carolyn was attending 4th grade.
