Aaron Lewis Chew household, 1940, Clarke County, Iowa

Located the 1940 census record of the Aaron Lewis Chew household in Clarke County, Iowa.  Aaron was my paternal 6th cousin 4 times removed.  Our common ancestors were Richard Chew and Frances Woodward.  Aaron's parents were John William Chew and Mary Ann Relea.

1940 U.S. census, Clarke County, Iowa, population schedule, Doyle Township, enumeration district (ED) 20-2, SD 5, sheet 5A, household 97, ; digital images, ( : accessed 23 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Aaron and his wife were living in Doyle Township.  The census states he was renting his home for $10 per month and they lived on a farm.  Aaron was 74 years old and born in Iowa. His wife, Luella, was 72 years old and also born in Iowa.  In 1935 their residence was rural Clarke County Iowa.

The record shows that Aaron had completed the 5th grade and that Luella had completed the 8th grade.  Aaron's occupation was listed as a farmer, and Luella had no occupation listed.

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