Census Sunday # 21 - 1920 US Census

This week's census page is from the 1920 Census for Belle Plaine, Scott county, Minnesota. It's on page 2A. (full image)

This page has 2 families I'm related to on it. The first is on lines 2-4 with my great-great grandma Lena OLDENBURG, Lena is cited as a 53 year old widowed woman who was born in Minnesota to parents from Germany. In the same household is her son-in-law John F. Heidingolder (sp?), a 23 years old man who was born in Minnesota to parents from Bavaria, and her daughter Alma. Alma is cited as a 23 year old female who was born in Minnesota. She's cited with her father being born in Minnesota and her mother in Germany. (There's an obvious error there I haven't researched yet.) All 3 were able to read, write, and speak English.

The 2nd family is my great-grandparents Fred and Mary Blume on lines 14-20. Fred is cited as a 48 year old thrasher who was born in Minnesota to parents born in Hanover. Mary is cited as a 35 year old woman who was born in Minnesota to parents who were also born in Minnesota. Also in their family are their children: Loren H, a 13 year old boy; Lester C, an 11 year old boy; Ervin H, a 10 year old boy; Florence E, a 7 year old girl; and Lucille A, an 11 month old girl. All the children but Lucille had attended school and are cited as being able to read and write.

  • Line 1: Alvin BAUMAN is the grandson of the last head from the previous page.
