Zelma and the 1940 Census
With the release of the 1940 census fast approaching there are a few ancestors I'm anxious to research. Meet Zelma Maude White. In 1940 she would be 36, one year younger than I am now. In 3 short years she would be sending a son off to fight in a world war and several years after that another son to fight in Korea. Together with her husband Andrew Garland, she would run The Hiltop Restaurant on Route 2 in Hermon, ME. A love of food they passed down and resides strongly in me today. I can't wait to see what the 1940 census will reveal about Zelma.
