  • Notes 
    •        In the 1925 North Dakota State Census, Rusty West is a six month old, male. He lives with his parents, August and Bertha, and also six siblings, Frank, Doris, Alice, Florence, Lyle, and his twin brother Ross. The family lives in Greene Township, Ransom County, North Dakota. Rusty is considered a U. S. Citizen. No further information is provided. [WA 09.]
             In the 1930 U. S. Federal Census, Rusty West is a five year old, white, single male. He was born in North Dakota of parents who were born in Russia. The record indicates they were born in Germany, but this is erroneous. I am using information from the 1920 Census that definitely indicates their birth in Russia. Rusty is not in school, so there is nothing to say about competence in English, except to say that most kids at this age are quite fluent in spoken English. Rusty lives with his parents, August and Bertha, and six other siblings: Frank, Doris, Alice, Lyle, Florence and his twin brother, Ross. The family lives in Dilworth, Clay County, Minnesota. [WA 08.]
             In the 1940 U. S. Federal Census, Rusty West is a 15 year old, white, single male. He was born in North Dakota of parents who were born in Russia. I am not using the information given that they were born in Germany because it is erroneous. Rusty is in school and has completed the 8th grade. He has lived in the same place since 1935 (Riverton Township, Clay County, Minnesota) on a farm. Although he was not at work at the time of the Census, he is a non-paid family farm worker, working in the farm industry. Rusty lives with his parents, Bertha and August, including Frank (Roy), Lyle, Ross, Thomas, Kenneth, Florence, and the Blakeway family: Doris West Blakeway, her husband, Virgil J. Blakeway, and their daughter, Virginia. [WA 10.]
