George E. Haley household, 1940, Marion County, Ohio

Located the 1940 census record of the George E. Haley household in Claridon Township, Marion County, Ohio.  George was my paternal 1st cousin 3 times removed - our common ancestors are George J. Haley and Rachel H. Gary.

1940 U.S. Census, Marion County, Ohio, population schedule, Claridon Township, enumeration district (ED) ED 51-4, SD 8, sheet 2B, household 42, ; digital images, ( : accessed 12 December 2016); National Archives, Washington, D.C..

At the time of enumeration, George and his wife were living on a farm in Claridon Township, Marion County, Ohio.  He owned his home and the value was $3500.  George was 76 years old and born in Ohio.  His wife, Elizabeth, was also 76 years old and born in Ohio. Their residence in 1935 was listed as the same place.

The record shows that both had completed the 8th grade in education and no occupation was listed.  However, other records I have for George indicate that he was an attorney, so I'm not sure why it only listed an 8th grade education.

In my database, George was the son of William Wesley Haley and Jane Elizabeth Owen. He died November 15, 1949 at Mt. Gilead, Morrow County, Ohio and was buried in the Claridon Cemetery in Marion County, Ohio.  Wife Elizabeth's maiden name was Devore.  

If you have additional information or are connected to this family, I would love to hear from you.
