Ishmal Wells household, 1940, Vanderburgh County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Ishmal Wells household in Vanderburgh County, Indiana.  Ishmal's wife, Rhoda, was Corinne's maternal great grandaunt.  Their common ancestors were Alpha Revis Chivlare and Clara Belle Followay.  

1940 U.S. census, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, population schedule, Evansville, enumeration district (ED) 93-20, SD 8, sheet 8A, 313 Clark Street, household 190, ; digital images, ( : accessed 26 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Ishmal was living in the city of Evansville.  The census states he was renting his home and that the rent was $8 per month.  Ishmal was 70 years old and was born in Kentucky.  His wife, Rhoda, was 42 years old and born in Indiana.  In 1935, their residence was the same place.

The record shows that Ishmal had completed no formal schooling and that Rhoda had completed the 8th grade.  Neither of them had an occupation listed.

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