Shaky Leaves : Albert F. Adams household, 1930 census Monroe County, Indiana

Albert F. Adams was the husband of my maternal first cousin three times removed, Gladys Marie Gilliland.   Through hints, I was able to locate their family in the 1930 census of Washington Township, Monroe County, Indiana.

1930 U.S. Census, Monroe County, Indiana, population schedule, Washington Township, enumeration district (ED) 53-25, SD 10, sheet 5A, dwelling 93, family 93, ; digital images, ( : accessed 19 December 2015); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the census, Albert owned his own home, valued at $2000, owned a radio, and had been married for 6 years.  His age was listed as 30, and he was born in Indiana, as were both of his parents.  He worked as a laborer in a stone mill.

Wife Gladys was 29 years old, born in Indiana, as were her parents.  She did not have an occupation listed.  Children in the household were Wilma, aged 4 1/12, and Albert E., aged 2 4/12, both born in Indiana.  Albert was also mentioned as a "Junior", but his middle name was Eugene, while his father's was Fritch.

I had already located the family in the 1940 census in the same location.  Their son, Lloyd, was the one who provided me with many photographs of the Ida Davis and Gilliland families.

Gladys was the daughter of William Everett and Maude Nell (Arthur) Gilliland.

If you are related in any way to this family, I would like to hear from you.
