Roy Arthur household, 1940, Greene County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Roy Arthur household in Greene County, Indiana.  Roy is my maternal 3rd cousin 4 times removed. Our common ancestors are Alexander Crockett and Elizabeth Watkins.  Roy's parents were Benjamin Arthur and Cora Viola Ooley.

1940 U.S. census, Greene County, Indiana, population schedule, Smith Township, enumeration district (ED) 28-16, SD 7, sheet 5B, household 161, ; digital images, ( : accessed 26 December 2016); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Roy and his wife were living in Smith Township.  The census states that Roy owned his home and the value was $300 and he lived on a farm.  Roy was 36 years old and born in Indiana.  His wife, Mae [listed as May in the record], was 26 years old and also born in Indiana.  In 1935, their residence was the same place.

The record shows that Roy had completed the 8th grade and that Mae had completed four years of high school.  Roy's occupation was listed as a farmer, and Mae didn't have an occupation listed.

Also living in the household were sons Dale, age 4, and Keith, age 1, both born in Indiana.

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