Census Sunday # 23 - 1940 US Census

This weeks page is from the 1940 US Census for Belle Plaine, Scott, Minnesota on page 7B. (full image) This image has many parts where the writing has faded and is hard to read.

I'm related to the household on lines 46-49, Fred and Mary BLUME. Fred is cited as a 69 year old operator of a saw mill. Mary is cited as a 56 year old woman who doesn't work outside the home. Loren is the oldest child at home and is cited as a 34 year old single man who works as a mechanic in the "wall digging industry." He's also marked as the person who gave he information to the enumerator. The only other child still at home is the youngest child, Lois (my grandma). She was cited as a 14 year old girl who had attended school in the previous month. Lois is also the only one of the 4 cited as having completed any high school, with 1 year of high school completed.
