Guy Bowman household, 1940, Wabash County, Indiana

Located the 1940 census record of the Guy Bowman household in Wabash County, Indiana.  Guy was the husband of my maternal 3rd cousin 3 times removed, Geraldine.  Our common ancestors were Nathan C. Beals and Elizabeth Chew.  Guy's parentage is unknown at this time to me.  Geraldine's parents were William Otto Little and Bertha Jane Means.

1940 U.S. census, Wabash County, Indiana, population schedule, Waltz Township, enumeration district (ED) 85-26, SD 5, sheet 5B, Howell Road, household 106, ; digital images, ( : accessed 21 January 2017); National Archives, Washington, D.C..
At the time of the enumeration, the family was living in Waltz Township.  The census states that Guy owned his home and that the value was $2000.  Guy was 35 years old and born in Indiana.  His wife, Geraldine, was 31 years old and also born in Indiana.  Their residence in 1935 was the same place.

The record shows that Guy had completed 4 years of high school and was a school bus driver and store operator.  His wife, Geraldine, had completed 2 years of college but had no occupation listed.

Also living in the household were daughter Pamela, age 4, born in Indiana, and son Gary H., age 8 months, born in Indiana.

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