Annie Emelia (Lund) (Draney) Wheeler - 1940 US Census

Continuing my research with Annie, I've pulled up the newly released 1940 US Census for Plain City, and there she was!

Interestingly, she reported her age (I know that she reported because she has an (x) next to her name) as 70,  but the birth date I have of 19 April 1870 would make her 69 years old. She would have been just over a week shy of her 70th birthday. I wonder if she rounded up on purpose.

Also, she reported her highest education as 8th grade. I wonder if the Plain City School has old records I could look at...wouldn't that be awesome?!?

Finally, I'll have to look into the farm schedules for 1940 and see if they still exist.

Annie lived to 1852 so she would appear in the 1950 census. I'll have to wait another 10 years to see that. Oh, and apparently I didn't find her in the 1920 census yet - I'll have to do that next.
