  • Notes 
    •        In the 1920 U. S. Federal Census, Frank is a 3 7/12 year old, white, single male. He was born in North Dakota of parents who were both born in Russia. He lives with his parents, August and Bertha, in Binghamton township, Barnes County, North Dakota. [WA 07.]
             In the 1925 North Dakota State Census, Frank is an eight year old male and is a U. S. Citizen. Frank lives with his parents, August and Bertha, and six siblings: Doris, Alice, Lyle, Florence, Lyle, Ross, and Rusty, Ross' twin brother. The family lives in Greene Township, Ransom County, North Dakota. Further information is not provided. [WA 09.]
             In the 1930 U. S. Federal Census, Frank (LeRoy) is a 13 year old, white, single male. He was born in North Dakota of parents who where born in Russia. I am using 1920 census data here because the 1930 census data indicates that the parents were born in Germany, which is erroneous. Frank is attending school and reads, writes, and speaks English. I assume the latter because the record indicates nothing about speaking. Frank lives with his parents, August and Bertha, as well as six siblings: Doris, Alice, Lyle, Ross, Rusty, and Florence. The family lives in Dilworth, Clay County, Minnesota. [WA 08.]
             In the 1940 U. S. Federal Census, Frank (Roy) is a 23 year old, white, single male. He was born in North Dakota of parents who were born in Russia. I am using previously indicated origin of birth for Frank's parents because they were born in Russia, not Germany. Frank has not attended school or college since March 1, 1939. The highest level of school achievement is that of 8th grade. Frank has lived in the same place (Riverton, Township, Clay County, Minnesota) since 1935 on a farm. He is currently at work as a farm laborer in the farming industry. He is a salary worker. In 1939, he worked 42 week for a salary of $200. He did receive income of $50 or more from source other than salary. Frank lives with his parents, Bertha and August, including Lyle, Ross, Rusty, Thomas, Kenneth, and Florence as well as The Blakeway family: Doris West Blakeway, Virgil J. Blakeway, and their daughter, Virginia. The families live in Riverton Township, Clay County, Minnesota. [WA 10.]
