The Elusive Arnetts

I have hit a wall with Ilau's children.  The only information I can find about her daughter Gayle is the 1940 census that I already published twice.  There is another child that I can't find anything on except that his/her name was apparently Living.
So, I will move on to the only sibling of my grandmother that I met- Lawrence, or Bud.  His full name was Lawrence William Arnett & he was born on July 31, 1909 in Siskiyou, California.
The 1910 Siskiyou census records him as being 8 months old & living with his father William, mother Mary, sisters Illa & Dollie, and his father's mother Ora.  
The 1920 Siskiyou census shows him living with his mother & father as well as Dolly & a brother named David.  Ilau had grown up & flown the nest & Ora had died.
The 1930 Siskiyou census has him living with Ilau & Georgie Porgie at 20 years of age.
I discovered a 1947 draft card for Lawrence just today that revealed he had married a woman named Cecelia.
They were living in Santa Rosa.
Bud died on June 24, 1980 in Shasta.
