1920 Wainer Census

My Father grew up in Maine. When I was younger my Uncle Stephen, who I’m named for, still lived in the family home in Maine and during the summer we would often visit.

Here’s a 1920 census showing my Grandfather, Grandmother, Uncle Mike, Aunt Vicky, and my Uncle Stephen:

Two Brothers for Two Sisters vol 1

Kinda sounds like a play, huh?

Anyway, two of my Aunts, Helen Knickerbocker and Mildred(Snookie) Knickerbocker, married two brothers: John O. Vesterby and Ernest Vesterby.

My Aunt Helen was born on 21 Dec, 1902 in Minnesota and died on 9 Nov 1986 in California. Her Husband, John O. Vesterby was born 25 July, 1901 in Minnesota and died in California on 15 Sept 1967.

Here’s a copy of the 1930 US Census listing Helen, John and their first son:

Clarence and Martha

When I was younger and my mom and dad would argue, invariably one of them would call the other “Martha” or “Clarence”. Martha and Clarence were my maternal Grandmother and Grandfather. They had quite a few children(10 – my mom being the youngest), so I’m sure there might have been a few raised voices in the house. Here’s a part of the 1930 census of Minnesota with Clarence, Martha, my mom ( Marjorie) and a few of her siblings that were still in the house at the time.
