Located the 1940 census record of the Arthur Bevan household in Kiowa County, Kansas. Arthur was my maternal 3rd cousin 4 times removed. Our common ancestors were Aaron Mills and Charity Mendenhall. He was also my 6th cousin 4 times removed through John Beals and Mary Clayton, and my 7th cousin 4 times removed (3 times) through William Clayton and Prudence Lanckford. Arthur's parents were Stacy Bevan and Sarah Beals.
At the time of the enumeration, Arthur and his wife were living in the town of Haviland. The census states that Arthur owned his home and the value was $1500 and it was a farm. Arthur was 63 years old and born in Iowa. His wife, Madge, was 60 years old and born in Indiana. In 1935, their residence was the same place.
The record showed that Arthur had completed the 7th grade and that Madge had completed 4 years of high school. Neither of them had an occupation listed in the census.
According to my database, they had at least one son, Herman Lewis Bevan.
If you have any additional information or are connected to this family, I'd love to hear from you.
