In the 1920 census, Walter says he was born (ca 1893) in Maryland as were both parents; Nannie says she was born (ca 1896) in New York (state) as were both parents.

None of the 4 heads of households indexed in 1920 as Coulon in Wayne County, Michigan are old enough to be her parents. They could easily be siblings; none born in NY (PA, MI, and Canada)

In 1910, the only indexed Coulon head of household is Owen, age 69, born Michigan.

This information cannot be called exhaustive, however, as I often find Coulon's misspellend and misindexed. But it might suggest at least a check in NY - she won't be indexed in 1900, but there aren't likely to be that many Coulon families to check for a child Nan, Nannie, or Nancy of age 5 or 6. In addition to some Coulons in New York City, there are several upstate near the Candadian border as I recall.
