Census Sunday: Eugene Kunce household, 1940, Cass County, Indiana

My paternal grandaunt, Clara Elnora (Haley) Kunce, was enumerated in the 1940 census in Logansport, Cass County, Indiana, in her husband, Eugene's household.  They were living in the 1st Ward of the city at 12 Columbia Street.

1940 US Census, Cass County, Indiana, population schedule, Ward 1, Logansport, enumeration district (ED) 9-9, SD 2, sheet 3A, household 57, 12 Columbia Street, ; digital images, ( : accessed 22 March 2015); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
The family consisted of Eugene C, aged 38, and Elenora, age 39, and son Lowell, aged 12.  All of them were born in Indiana, and their residence in 1935 was listed as Van Wert, Ohio.  They were renting their home, and the monthly rent was $10.  Eugene had completed 3 years of college, Elenora had completed the 8th grade, and son Lowell had completed the 5th grade. Eugene's occupation was listed as an Evangelical Minister.

Prior to this find, I didn't realize that they had a pastorate at this location.  In 1930 they were in Huntington County, Indiana and must have had a pastorate in Van Wert, Ohio in between then. 

Census Sunday is a daily blogging prompt used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites.

State & Federal census sheets are filled with information for genealogists. Both the population & non-population schedules give us insights into the lives of our ancestors. What have you found that is Surprising? Reassuring? Bewildering? Census Sunday is a daily blogging prompt suggested by Colleen Pasquale of Leaves and Branches.
