    A warm welcome to Brit-gen.

    The 1930 Census records Marion's age as 2 yrs 2 months, born New Jersey. The 1940 Census records her age as 12 years, born New Jersey.

    Note - I couldn't view the site provided by your link but assume we are talking about the daughter of John and Mary?

    Thankey very much.

    This is from the census 1930.

    Marion L Donaher

    New Jersey, United States
    Residence 1930
    Hamilton, Mercer, New Jersey, USA
    Age 2
    Marital status Single
    Race White

    Mother's birth place Pennsylvania, United States
    Siblings Donald J Donaher
    Evelen A Donaher
    William J Donaher
    Ruth Donaher.

    But I Do believe that I was wrong here found that The Marion or M, Marion who died

    in 1987 was perhaps not the right Marion E Donoher.

    So her mother could still be alive.

    But this should be her father could this be James Edwin Anderson.

    James E Anderson

    Her father lived in Cypress Orange County in at the age 80 Years old.

    From the article .

    Melissa Sue Anderson called me from her home in Canada, where she has lived since 2002 after moving from Brentwood. She married Sloan, a writer and producer, in 1990.

    The conversation flowed smoothly – there were no awkward pauses. I was able to keep in check the besotted, prepubescent boy that threatened to erupt like an ill-timed zit.

    She talked like the native Californian she is, generously tossing out “anyway” and “really cool” as we discussed family, Hollywood – and Orange County.

    Her father, Jim Anderson, 80, a retired salesman, has lived in Cypress for years. She and her kids visited him last summer.

    James Edwin Anderson was perhaps born in Utah June 18 1927 . Died April 1 2010.

    So that must or could be her father.
