By the 1930 census, Sam’s household in Locust Grove Township, Stone County, Arkansas includes his son Corbin and his wife Nora (Chadwick) Barnes and their child Melba. Sam was married at 18 years old (To Mary Jane Berry). Corbin was 27 and Nora was 17 when they were married which puts their marriage approximately 1.5 to 2 years prior (approx 1928).
