Shaky Leaves : Thomas Crane household, 1930 census Johnson County, Indiana

Found the 1930 census record of the family of my maternal 2nd-great granduncle and family, Thomas Franklin Crane in the 1930 census of Edinburgh, Johnson County, Indiana through's hints on my LeMaster & Allied Family Tree.

1930 US Census, Johnson County, Indiana, population schedule, Edinburgh, enumeration district (ED) 41-1, SD 11, sheet 17A, dwelling 454, family 461, ; digital images, ( : accessed 3 January 2016); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
Thomas was a widower, his wife Mary Florence (Gilliland) Crane having died in 1924 in Monroe County, Indiana.  In 1930, he was enumerated as a Retail merchant, running a grocery, and rented his home for $ 11 per month.  His age was 59, born in Indiana, as were his parents.

Listed in the household were his daughters, Georgiana, age 18; Grace, age 16; Dorothy, age 13; Mary, age 11; and Louise, age 9; all born in Indiana.

Prior to this find, I did not realize that the family had moved from Monroe County over to Johnson County, or that he was involved in the grocery business.

If you have any additional information about this family, I would love to hear from you.
