    On 10 Apr 1930, the census shows Norval (28) and Isabelle (27) WRIGHT living at 301 Second Street, Peoria, Peoria County, Illinois. With them was their son, Norval WRIGHT, Jr. age 5 years and 1 month. They were renting their home at $30.00 a month. They owned a radio. He was a laborer at the steel plant.

    Son of Norval and Isabelle (___?___) WRIGHT:

    10-1-1. Norval WRIGHT, Jr., born 1925, Peoria, Peoria County, Illinois.
   Norval was a policeman.
    There is a plaque dedicated to him in Peoria, Illinois, where he died.
    (Note: I'm not sure if this was father or son.)
