My wife's ancestors in 1940

In the spirit of an earlier post, I'm speculating on where various ancestors of my wife were enumerated in the 1940 census. My wife's:

  • Father-can't enumerate he who is not yet born.
  • Mother-with her parents, probably in Marcelline, Linn County, Missouri.
  • Wilbur and Grace (Mortier) Johnson [paternal grandparents]--city of Rock Island, Illinois.
  • Ola and Anna (Apgar) Lake [maternal grandparents]--Marcelline, Linn County, Missouri.
  • Joseph and Eva (Trask) Johnson [great-grandparents] --city of Rock Island, Illinois (probably)
  • Henry and Caroline (Freund) Mortier [great-grandparents]--city of Rock Island, Illinois
  • Marie (Desmarais) Apgar Verikios Williams [great-grandmother]--Chicago, Illinois
  • Samuel Otto Johnson [great-grandfather]--Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois
  • Jennie (Kile-Smith) Trask [great-grandmother]--Galesburg or Peoria, Illinois

We'll have wait for the census to be released to find out if I was right or not.

Of the in-laws, the Mortiers and Samuel Johnson I can can pretty much pinpoint. The great-grandmother in Chicago was pretty mobile, the Lakes moved from Missouri to Chicago and back once or twice, and the Johnsons I don't have a precise location for.

On my side, I pretty much know where they all were living in 1940 as the property is still in the family today.
