The 1930 Federal Census for Richmond, Virginia, District 27, page 140B records Robert L. (24) and Gladys M. (21) Jones living at the home of the widower Richard A. Hattorf (56) (indexed at ancestry.com as Holtorf) at 118 Nansemond Street. However, after checking the 1920 Census, this Gladys is actually Gladys Hattorf and not the daughter of Eldridge and Abby Terry.
The 1930 Federal Census for Irisburg, Henry Co., VA, District 5 records William R. Jones (24) and his wife Gladys T. Jones (20) and sons Randolph T. Jones (2) and Cyril R. Jones (5/12).
