Harry N. Whisler household, 1940, Hamilton County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Harry N. Whisler household in Hamilton County, Indiana.  Harry was my maternal first cousin 3 times removed.  Our common ancestors were Carey W. Lambertson and Clara E. Cook.  Harry's parents were Omer Anderson Whisler and Lola May Lambertson.

1940 U.S. census, Hamilton County, Indiana, population schedule, Jackson Township, enumeration district (ED) 29-13, SD 6, sheet 3B, household 59, ; digital images, Ancestry.com (www.ancestry.com : accessed 17 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, Harry and his wife were living in Jackson Township.  The census states that Harry was renting his home for $10 per month and that it was on a farm.  Harry was 33 years old and born in Indiana.  His wife, Edna, was 23 years old and born in Indiana.  In 1935 their residence was the same place.

The record shows that Harry had completed the 8th grade and that Edna had completed 4 years of high school.  Harry's occupation was listed as operator of a farm and Edna had no occupation listed.

Also living in the household was son Russel L., age 3, born in Indiana.

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