With John is Minnie, 43, Iva, 19, Paul 17, Ralph, 13, Charles, 10, Catherine, 2.
Living with them are my grandparents Harvey McBee & Anna, with Kenneth, 2, Kathleen,
2, and John, newly born. I cannot find John and Minnie in 1930, although they were
living in Des Moines by that time. With the addition of Carl, John and Minnie had 12 children.

I would love to correct any incorrect information that I have here.
