I hope they didn't....

I'm always on the look-out for Waters family members who have decided to disappear for the 1930 census. They are three sisters, two of whom are married and who moved away from their parents: Ruby Waters, Alma (Waters) Price, and Ethel (Waters) Quitman or Bouchillon. I just can't find them!

Then, I'm talking to my dad about the upcoming 2010 census, asking about him having filled out prior censuses from my childhood. He then mentions a friend from work who didn't care to fill out the 2000 census. When census takers came to the man's door he said, "There are three people here. That's all you need to know!" and shut the door in their face.

I hope my ancestor didn't do the same!
