George M. Anderson household, 1940, Seneca County, Ohio

Located the 1940 census record of the George M. Anderson household in Seneca County, Ohio.  George's wife, Ona, was my maternal 2nd cousin 5 times removed.  Our common ancestors were Alexander Crockett and Elizabeth Watkins.  Ona's parents were William Perry Crockett and Blanche Alida Weaver.

1940 U.S. census, Seneca County, Ohio, population schedule, Fostoria, enumeration district (ED) 74-14B, SD 13, sheet 4A, 202 North Union Street, household 85, ; digital images, ( : accessed 23 February 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, the family was living in Fostoria.  The census states that George was renting his home for $30 per month.  George was 48 years old and born in Wisconsin.  His wife, Eva, was 44 years old and born in Indiana.  In 1935 their residence was in Portsmouth, Scioto County, Ohio.

The record shows that George had completed 5 years of college and that his occupation was listed as a Clergyman.  His wife, Eva, had completed 1 year of college, but had no occupation listed.

Also living in the household were son George O., age 20, born in Iowa, who had completed 1 year of college; Helen, age 14, born in Illinois, who had completed the 8th grade; and Elliott M., age 12, born in Indiana, who had completed the 5th grade.

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