Charles Butler household, 1940, San Diego County, California

Located the 1940 census record of the Charles Butler household in San Diego County, California.  Charles was my paternal 3rd cousin twice removed.  Our common ancestors were Jacobs Lemasters and Hannah ________.  Charles' parents were Frank Carlos Butler and Clara LeMasters.

1940 U.S. census, San Diego County, California, population schedule, San Diego, enumeration district (ED) 62-107, SD 20, sheet 4A, 3083 Island, household 74, ; digital images, ( : accessed 22 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Charles and his wife were living in the city of San Diego.  The census states that Charles owned his home, its value was $1000 and was not a farm.  Charles was 55 years old and born in Missouri.  His wife, Linda, was 50 years old and born in Canada.  In 1935, their residence was the same place.

The record shows that both Charles and Linda had completed the 8th grade.  Charles' occupation was listed as a janitor in a public school, while Linda had no occupation listed.

Also living in the household was their son Frank, age 26, born in California, working as a tire retreader; and mother-in-law Mary Hoag, age 64, widow, born in England with no occupation.

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