Leona D. Lambertson - 1920 Madison Co., IN

My maternal great-grandaunt, Leona D. Lambertson, appears in the 1920 census of Elwood, Madison Co., IN as a lodger in the home of Sherman B. Harting. In this capacity, she was listed as a servant.

Leona was the daughter of Charles Wilson and Pearl May (Beals) Lambertson, born August 20, 1904 in Hamilton Co., IN.

I did not know that she was working at such a young age as a domestic, nor do I know of any relationship with this particular Harting family. I was surprised to not find Leona listed with the rest of her family in the 3rd ward of Elwood.
