Arthur Miller household, 1940, Vanderburgh County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Arthur Miller household in Vanderburgh County, Indiana.  Arthur was Corinne's maternal great-grandfather.  His parents were Mathias Miller and Elizabeth Schaeffer.

1940 U.S. census, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, population schedule, Evansville, enumeration district (ED) 93-77, SD 8, sheet 8B, 1010 West Delaware Street, household 147, ; digital images, ( : accessed 25 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Arthur and his wife were living in the city of Evansville. The census states that Arthur was renting his home for $18 per month.  Arthur was 33 years old and born in Indiana.  His wife, Marie, was 30 years old and born in Indiana.  In 1935, they were living in the same place.

The record shows that Arthur had completed the 7th grade and Marie had completed the 8th grade.  Arthur's occupation was listed as a laborer for the commodity district with the W.P.A. and Marie had no occupation listed.
