The record didn't show that Herman had completed any level of education, but showed that Jessie had completed the 6th grade. Herman's occupation was listed as mechanic repairman at a garage and Jessie didn't have any occupation listed.
Also living in the household was their daughter, Helen A., age 18, born in Missouri who had completed 3 years of high school.
According to my database, there were additional children in the family not living with them in 1940: Orville, Frank, Alice, Myrtle and Ruby.
If you have any additional information or are connected to this family, I'd love to hear from you.
