Albert Metzner household, 1940, Allen County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Albert Metzner household in Allen County, Indiana. Albert was my paternal 2nd cousin 3 times removed.  Our common ancestors were Jasper Metzner and Hannah Reisenburg.  Albert's parents were Louis Napoleon Metzner and Elizabeth Reiter.

1940 U.S. census, Allen County, Indiana, population schedule, Fort Wayne, enumeration district (ED) 94-42, SD 4, sheet 15B, 915 Lincoln Avenue, household 336, ; digital images, Ancestry.com (www.ancestry.com : accessed 26 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Albert and his wife were living in Ward 6 of the city of Fort Wayne.  The census states that Albert was renting his home for $38 per month.  Albert was 38 years old and was born in Indiana.  His wife, Linnea, was also 38 years but was born in Michigan.  In 1935, their residence was Grand Rapids, Kent County Michigan.

The record shows that Albert and Linnea had both completed 4 years of high school.  Albert's occupation was listed as a bartender at a tavern, and no occupation was listed for Linnea.

Also living in the household were sons Gordon, aged 10, born in Michigan who had completed the 4th grade; and Albert Jr., aged 8, born in Michigan who had completed the 1st grade.

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