Clarence Alber household, 1940, Wabash County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Clarence Alber household in Wabash County, Indiana.  Clarence's wife, Lucille, was Eileen's grandaunt.  Their common ancestors were Lawrence Solomon Lewis and Ruth Alice Sills.  

1940 U.S. Census, Wabash County, Indiana, population schedule, Ward 4, Wabash, enumeration district (ED) 85-17, SD 5, sheet 2A, household 26, 995 Michigan Street, ; digital images, Ancestry.com (www.ancestry.com : accessed 18 December 2016); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Clarence and his wife were living in the city of Wabash.  The census states Clarence was renting the home and the monthly rent was $8.  Clarence was 38 years old and born in Indiana. Lucille was 33 years old and born in Indiana.  In 1935, they were living in the same place.

The record shows that Clarence had completed the 6th grade in education and that Lucille had completed the 8th grade.  Clarence's occupation was listed as laborer on road construction through the W.P.A.

Also living in the household was daughter Mary Ruth, age 13, born in Indiana and had completed the 6th grade.

According to my database, Lucille's full name was Florence Lucille.

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