On the 1930 census, John's name is spelled Littrell. If you notice the varied spellings above this appears to be the point that this branch finalizes their spelling as "LITTRELL". Georgia Eva is not with the family on this census or the 1940 census. She would have been 15 in 1930... married? The family lived in Florence Alabama at 618 E. Tuscaloosa St. a house they rented for $10 a month. John and Inez were married at ages 22 and 16, respectively. Both could read and write. John worked at a stone foundry (can't make out occupation/skill).

On the 1940 census the family is still living in Florence but now at 155 W. Royal Ave., they are paying $18 a month for rent. As in 1930 they and all their children are still living together, except Georgia Eva. They have been living there since at least 1935. John's occupation is more legible and appears to be "mounter" at a "Stove foundry" where he made $900 in 1939. Alvin Arnold appears to be a 'wrapper' at a bakery where his earnings for 1939 were $552.
Theckla D. is an 'operator' at a 'beauty shop'. John, Alvin, and Theckla al say they were employed for 52 weeks in 1939, but Theckla does not list her income. John says he works a 48 work week, Alvin says a 99 hour work week, and Theckla a 60 hour work week.

Could this stove foundry be Martin Stove & Range Company, Martin Stove & Range Company? In 1905 the Martin brothers purchased the company from King Hardware. Shortly after that, they bought the Florence foundry and began making cast-iron cookware under both the King and Martin names.
