Census Sunday: Great-Greats, Part 1

Of my sixteen great-great-grandparents only six where alive and living in the US for the 1930 census:

John Grant Allen
1930 US Census - Jackson, Jackson, Michigan
John G. Allen left Manistee to go work for the prison in Jackson in the 1920s.  He and his wife don't seem to have divorced but they lived separately for twenty + years, him is Jackson and her in Manistee.  The family story is that John was an electrician and went to Jackson to "electrify" the prison.  I have no idea just how much truth there is in that story, but I do know from records like this census that he was a guard there.  In 1930 he was living as a lodger at 208 W. Washington Ave.

  1. I was looking at your colorful chart, when this post came through. What an excellent project, getting prepared for the 1940 census and I loved how you posted the 1930s together. You are so organized.
