1949 Tax Return : Ord Wehrly LeMaster

My grandfather's federal tax return from 1949 sheds a bit of light on some family history.  This interesting piece of family ephemera was found by my parents while cleaning out some files.  A copy of the 1944 return is here.

At the time of the filing the family had moved to 1107 West Water Street in Portland, Indiana.

In the 1949 city directory of Portland, my grandfather was listed as a factory worker living at 1107 W. Water Street with wife and 4 children.  His salary income had improved to $ 3200 working for Delco Battery in Muncie, Indiana.
