George Washington Alderman household, 1940, St. Louis, Missouri

Located the 1940 census record of the George Washington Alderman household in St. Louis, Missouri.  George was my maternal 2nd cousin 4 times removed, our common ancestors are James Alderman (1774-bet1850-4) and Martha Cantell.  George was the son of James William Alderman and Mary Emeline Kimbro.

1940 U.S. Census, St. Louis City, Missouri, population schedule, Ward 26, enumeration district (ED) 96-679, SD 11, sheet 5B, household 102, 1236 Kings Highway, ; digital images, ( : accessed 18 December 2016); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, George and his wife were renting a home in Ward 26 of St. Louis City.  The monthly rent for the home was $45.  George was 53 years old and born in Illinois.  His wife, Mae, was age 47 and born in Missouri.  In 1935, they were both listed as living in St. Louis.

The record shows that George had completed the 8th grade in education and Mae had completed 2 years of high school.  George's occupation was listed as a Maintenance Man for a Catholic College.  The record doesn't indicate which college this would be, and my other research notes do not indicate which one.

According to my database, George and Mae had at least two children: Wilma and Mark, though they were not living with them at the time of the 1940 census.

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