Clarence and Martha

When I was younger and my mom and dad would argue, invariably one of them would call the other “Martha” or “Clarence”. Martha and Clarence were my maternal Grandmother and Grandfather. They had quite a few children(10 – my mom being the youngest), so I’m sure there might have been a few raised voices in the house. Here’s a part of the 1930 census of Minnesota with Clarence, Martha, my mom ( Marjorie) and a few of her siblings that were still in the house at the time.
