Glenn S. Overholt household, 1940, Wells County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Glenn S. Overholt household in Wells County, Indiana.  Glenn's wife, Sarah,  was my paternal 1st cousin 3 times removed.  Our common ancestor was Dr. Ezekiel Cooper Chew.  Sarah was the daughter of Edis Playfair Chew and Bertha Caupp.  Glenn was the son of Milward P. Overholt and Mary Rupley.

1940 U.S. census, Wells County, Indiana, population schedule, Union Township, enumeration district (ED) 90-27, SD 4, sheet 3A, household 53, ; digital images, ( : accessed 24 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Glenn and his wife were living in Union Township.  The census states that Glenn owned his home and that it was on a farm. Glenn was 25 years old and was born in Indiana.  His wife, Sarah, was 26 years old and was born in Ohio.  In 1935 their residence was the same place.

The record shows that Glenn had completed 3 years of high school and that Sarah had completed 4 years of high school. Glenn's occupation was listed as a truck driver and Sarah had no occupation listed.

Also listed in the household were son Wilbur E., age 5, born in Indiana; daughter Meba J., age 2, born in Indiana; and daughter Marilyn E., age 2, born in Indiana.

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