A Week About Annie–A Widow

In November, of 1928, Annie’s husband, Amos, died of pneumonia at the age of 56.  That must have been a difficult year.  Her youngest son would have been about 15 years old. In the 1930 census, Annie and her son were living in Leacock township with Annie’s daughter, Mabel, who had been married two years. Mabel’s husband, Martin, was a farmer.

A fun note about the 1930 census–it records whether or not there is a radio set in the home.
