Harry C. Goodridge household, 1940, Vanderburgh County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Harry C. Goodridge household in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana.  Harry was Corinne's 2nd cousin 3 times removed - their common ancestors were Petrus Theodore Rieber and Elizabeth Schuhmacher.

1940 U.S. Census, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, population schedule, , enumeration district (ED) ED 93-67, SD 8, sheet 16B, 916 Louisiana Street, household 360, ; digital images, ( : accessed 11 December 2016); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of this enumeration, Harry's family was living at 916 Louisiana Street in Evansville.  He was working as a sheet metal worker in a refrigeration plant.  Harry was 28 years old and born in Indiana.  His wife, Anna, was 25 years old and also born in Indiana.  A daughter, Patricia Ann, aged 8, was also in the house.  Patricia had completed the 1st grade and both Anna and Harry had 8th grade educations.

The family was renting their home and the cost of monthly rent was $20.

In my database, Harry was the son of Harry Augustus Goodridge and Lena Stocker.  While I don't have all the details yet, I show additional children in Harry and Anna's family include sons David and Harry.  I do not yet have Anna's maiden name in my database.

If you have any additional information or are connected to this family, would appreciate hearing from you.
