George B. Crawford household, 1940, Yuma County, Arizona

Located the 1940 census record of the George B. Crawford household in Yuma County, Arizona.  George was my maternal 6th cousin 3 times removed.  Our common ancestors were John Beals and Sarah Bowater.  George's parents were George Newton Crawford and Mary Elizabeth Birdwell.

1940 U.S. census, Yuma County, Arizona, population schedule, Yuma, enumeration district (ED) 14-8, SD 14-8, sheet 1B, 1011 7th Avenue, household 16, ; digital images, ( : accessed 23 February 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, George was living in the city of Yuma. The census states that George was renting his home for $10 per month.  George was 42 years old and was born in Texas.  His wife, Emma, was 37 years old and born in Texas.  Their residence in 1935 was the same place.

The record shows that both George and Emma had completed the 6th grade in education. George's occupation was listed as Track Works, S P Railroad [Southern Pacific], while Emma's occupation was listed as Housework in a private home.

Also living in the household were son Jack, age 19, born in Texas, working for Coca Cola delivery; son Elmer, age 17, born in Oklahoma, working as Messenger for Western Union; and son Wayne, age 15, born in Oklahoma, a student.

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