Hi BJ.

I found Leo Nora in the 1900 - 1930 censuses, and it narrowed her birthdate down to Oct 1875.

Dwelling 13/Family 14
409 Tricou St (rents for $13/month)
Charles Russel, head, white, 31, married, age 31 at first marriage, reads, writes, b LA, parents b LA, stationary engineer (contractor)

Shirley, niece, white, 1 yrs 7 months, b LA
John Jr., nephew, white, 5 months, b LA
Nora, mother-in-law, white, 45, widowed, reads, writes, she and parents b LA

She does not appear in the LA Death Index through 1949, nor does she appear in the Social Security Death Index. You might write to Orleans Parish and see if they can do a death certificate search for you, from 1950 - 1970. If you can find her death certificate, it should list the names of her parents, to the best knowledge of the informant.

I didn't find anyone in the 1880 census that looked like your LeoNora either, unfortunately. There are only 3 girls listed in the index who were born between 1874 and 1875 with a father born in LA (that is the only birthplace that agreed on all of the above censuses). Of those, the closest is Ella, b 1875, living in an orphanage in New Orleans.

Best of luck!
Karen
