Located the 1940 census record of the Claude Pefley household in Parke County, Indiana. On the enumeration his first name was spelled without a final 'e'. Claude was Eileen's maternal 4th cousin twice removed - their common ancestors were Jacob Pefley (c1724-c1778) and wife Esther (c1724- ).
At the time of the enumeration, Claude and his wife were living in Florida Township, Parke County, Indiana. He was renting his home for the sum of $10 per month, and didn't live on a farm. Claude was 48 years old and was born in Indiana. His wife, Gladys, was 47 years old and born in Indiana.
The record showed that both had completed the 8th grade in school and that Claude's occupation was that of a farmer.
Also living in the household was their daughter, Milbrey, aged 18, born in Indiana who had completed 4 years of high school. No occupation was listed.
In my database, Claude was the son of Daniel Voorhis Pefley and Lydia Delilah Charlotte Combs. Gladys was the daughter of Silas Adams and Nancy Hawkins.
If you have any additional information or are connected to this family, I'd love to hear from you.
