1940 Census – Ellwood Palmer Strode

This is the first in a series of blog posts of Photos relating to the 1940 Census.

Here is the 1940 Census for this household:

There is a couple of issues here: The wife’s name is not Louise. Louise was not 45 at the time. I will find the wife, my mother, elsewhere in the 1940 census.

Two people are missing, my grandmother and my aunt, as can be seen in the 1930 Census.

Mary L Million was a maid in 1930 and was confirmed to be by my mother before she passed away.

I confirmed with my aunt, that she was still at the above address in 1940, as she was in high school and living at home.

Here is a photo taken in 2012 of that house as recorded in the 1940 Census. Will have to work to get a better one.

However, here is a picture of the same house in 1929, which would be just before the 1930 Census as reported above.

Next to the house is a barn and this was taken in 1938, just before the 1940 Census.

In 1999, the barn looked like this.
