Frank Langer family : 1920 Vanderburgh Co., IN

My daughter's maternal great-great grandmother Clara Belle and her second husband, Frank A. LANGER, appeared in the 1920 census of Vanderburgh Co., IN in the 3rd ward of Evansville.

Frank LANGER was aged 48 years, born in Indiana, and worked as a fireman at a flour mill. Both of his parents were born in Germany. Wife Clara was aged 48 years, born in Kentucky, with both of her parents born in Kentucky also.

Clara's children appeared in the household, but were incorrectly listed under the LANGER surname. Eldest daughter, Rhoda M. Godbey was living with them as well, but her husband William was not listed. Daughters Nellie and Hallie and son Alpha were all listed under the wrong surname.

Frank A. LANGER b. ca. 1872 Indiana, d. October 9, 1949 Evansville, Vanderburgh Co., IN., m. September 22, 1919 in Evansville, Vanderburgh Co., IN. to Clara Belle FOLLOWAY, daughter of James and Julia (WILLIAMS) FOLLOWAY. Clara was born April 10, 1871 Kentucky and died July 21, 1951 Evansville, Vanderburgh Co., IN. Her first marriage was March 3, 1886 in Warrick Co., IN to Alpha Revis CHIVLARE, son of Miles and Louisa J. (BOYER) CHIVLARE. Alpha was born March 1866 Indiana and died July 7, 1919 in Perry Twp., Vanderburgh Co., IN.
