Not my family, but if this is your family maybe it will help. Do you know the given names of anyone in Florene's family? This "might" be her on the 1930 census Lamb Co, TX:

Jones, Robert W., 34, b OK, TX, TX
" Fay, 32, wife, b TX, TX, TX
" Edwin, 13, son, not clear but looks like NM
" Waldon, 11, son, b TX
" Lorena, 9, dau, b TX
" Bobbie, 7, dau, b TX
" Dallis[sic], 5, dau, b TX
" Florene, 2 ?/12, b TX

1920 census Floyd Co, TX, before Florene was born:

Jones, R.W., 22 md b OK, US, US
" M____ay F., wife, 21, b TX, TX, TX
" Robert E., son, 2 10/12, b NM
" Nathan W., 1 6/12, b TX

You can see here that some times these people use their first name and some times their middle name.

For anyone else who would like to build on this information, Florene married Francis Carroll and their double headstone can be view on Find a Grave (Irving is in Dallas Co, TX.)

If you don't know the names of any of her family, then you might want to obtain a copy the application she filled out to get her SS card. It will have the names of her parents, her residence at the time of application etc.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
