In the 1910 U.S. census, Elmer was living with his family in Pioche, Lincoln, Nevada.  His father Francis was a mechanical engineer.  The children were all in school except for Elmer, the baby.  His brother Earl Wadsworth was born in 1914, and sister Irene in 1919.

In the 1920 U.S. census, Pioche, Clemons, 10, was attending school.  His father Francis was a stationery engineer in a butcher shop.  His brother Rummell, 22, was a clerk in retail merchandise, and brother Arville, 17, was a stationery engineer in a silver mine.  Also at home were Earl, 5, and Irene, 4 months.
