Title: What became of Virginia Childs?
Post by: Erato on Sunday 21 January 18 21:51 GMT (UK)
I am looking for Virginia Childs, born 23 December, 1916 in Los Angeles.  Her parents were Eli Alexander Childs and Abigail [Abbie] Catherine Fox.  She can be found with her mother in Los Angeles in 1920 and 1930 but there is no sign of her thereafter - no marriage, no death.

Hi,

Seems she has a number of names.

Social Security and Claims Index
Virginia Christina Childs
Virginia Harriet Ewing
Virginia Lavinia Ewing
Virginia Ewing
b. 23 Dec. 1916, Los Angeles, CA., parents Elias A. Childs and Abbie C. Fox
d. 24 Nov. 2003
Note: Signature differs from NH, signed as Harriet Scott

SSDI gives her last residence as San Diego and that her SSN was issued in Nevada before 1951.

Thanks, dbree.  This must be her in 1940:

Hi,

I meant to post the 1940, but it was dinner time.

Looks like they just made the 1940 census,
