Hi. I'm not related to this family. This might be the Mason family:

Florence W Mason 16 -dau- b. 1914 Penn
Minnie G Mason         12 -dau- b. 1918 Penn

By 1940 Walter was a widower, living in Farmington, Warren, Penn.

Here is a WWII draft card for Walter:

U.S., World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 about Walter De Forest Mason

Birth Place:        Onoville, New York
Residence:        Warren, Pennsylvania
Age: 61
Occupation: RFD #1, Youngsville, Warren, Pa.
Nearest Relative: Mrs. Florence Mahan, Russell, Pa.

Florence might be his daughter, and therefore of course, sister to Harold.

This might be Florence in 1940:

1940 United States Federal Census about Florence W Mahan

Age:        27
Estimated Birth Year:        abt 1913

Sheet Number:        31A

--Florence W Mahan 27 -married- b. 1913 ; Ward Attendant, Hospital

This might be a death record for her:

Last Residence:        16345 Russell, Warren, Pennsylvania, United States of America

Last Benefit:        16345 Russell, Warren, Pennsylvania, United States of America

State (Year) SSN issued: Pennsylvania (Before 1951)

As an aside, did you know that Harold got into a bit of trouble in 1944? Let me know if you are interested in that story.

Hope this helps. Annie
