Wheeler Household - 1920 US Census

As I mentioned yesterday, I had yet to find the Wheeler's in 1920. Well...here they are.

Interestingly, Lavon (who is Merratta Lavon Draney) is listed as a "daughter-in-law" but she is in fact a "step-daughter" - being Annie's daughter from her first marriage.

Also interesting, Joseph is an Auto Mechanic. In 1920. I think that's pretty cool.

One last note - Annie's mother is listed as being born in Denmark. Every other document I have for her lists her mother's birth place as Norway. Perhaps one of her step-children answered the questions and didn't really know.
