Biography of Nora Wallingford

Nora Wallingford was born in 1887 in Kansas. She married Charles Wallingford, who's family moved to Kansas from Kentucky. The couple owned a farm in the "Number 20 district" (the local school district) of Atchison County; during the Dust Bowl they lost the farm but were later able to buy land in the same area. The couple's eldest son, Kenneth, continued to work the 330-plus acre farm and his son, Kenneth Jr, followed him.
