Richard Calvin Barkley (#20 of 40) – My First 40 Finds in the 1940 US Census
Jun 20th, 2012 by Jessica

Welcome to My First 40 Finds in the 1940 US Census!  This blog series is a tribute to the first 40 entries that I located without the use of an index.

The 1940 US Federal Census was released online to the public on April 2, 2012.  Within the first three days, I had already found 40 families from my various tree branches.  I spent six months prior to the release researching the exact addresses and locations for these families so I could find them quickly upon the census release.

This 1940 US Federal Census entry features the family of Richard Calvin Barkley and his wife Olive Charlotte (Johnson) Barkley.  Richard is my 2nd great grand uncle. They were the very first family enumerated for Center Township, ED 64-4 in Porter County, Indiana.

Richard was 52 years old with an 8th grade education and born in Kansas.  He was a mason in the building industry, having worked 46 weeks in 1935 and earned $1,500.  His industry codes show his line of work as “Brickmasons, stonemasons, and tile setters.”  Olive was 48, also had an 8th grade education and was born in Illinois.  She listed her occupation as Housewife.

They are listed here with their son Lester R. Barkley (23) and daughter Corinne Olive Barkley (18), both of whom were born in Indiana.  Lester was a clerk in the Steel industry, having worked 52 weeks in 1939 he had earned $1,300.  His industry codes show “Clerical Work” in the “Blast furnaces, steel works, and rolling mills industry.”  Both he and his father had worked 40 hours during the last week of March.  Daughter Corinne had just finished high school.

The family is living in the same town as they did in 1935, but not in the same house.  They were renting a home at 1208 Harrison Franklin Street in Valparaiso, Center Township for $30 per month.
