    Notes 
    • 1930 Census, Niagara Co, New York (City of Niagara Falls), enumerated on Apr 18 1930 at 738 Pierce:
      Edward W. Moran, 28, asst operator for power company; wife Marie J, 26; son Warren C, 6; son Earl, 4y 6m; son Morris, 1y 7m. All born in New York except Edward, born in West Virginia. (Note: Marie's correct birthplace is Ontario, Canada.)

      1940 Census, Niagara Co, New York (City of Niagara Falls), enumerated on Apr 10 1940 at 1804 Whitney Ave:
      Walter Moran, 37, electrician (electric appliances); wife Maria, 36; son Warren, 16; son Earl, 14; son Morris, 11; dau Marilyn, 9; son Gordon, 7.

      The 1937 obituary of Walter Moran's brother Elbert stated Walter's residence as Kane, Pennsylvania, the same as their sister Idestra. Given Walter's documented residence in Niagara Falls in 1930 and 1940, and lacking further reference to his residence anywhere in Pennsylvia in the interim, it is possible that Elbert's obituary was in error.
