Census Sunday #5

I almost forgot this week. Also, I'm not likely to make a post next Sunday as I'll be out of town visiting a friend.

This week's census image is from the 1930 US Census for Glenwood township, Winneshiek county, Iowa, page 6B. (full image)

On this image, my relatives are on lines 63-65. It has my great grandparents Henry & Clarissa LOVEN & their family at the time. This census shows Henry as being a 39 year old county supervisor. It shows Henry as having married at the age of 26 & being born in Iowa to parents that were born in Norway. He is also on the farm schedule. His wife Clarissa (misspelled as Clarisse) is shown as being a 36 year old woman, who married at 23 & was born in Iowa to parents who were also born in Iowa. Their oldest child Lloyd is shown as being 11, born in Iowa, & having attended school. Orval (mispelled as Orvall) is shown as being 9, born in Iowa, & having attended school.
