Lowry, Michael, head, male, white, 70 years old, married. Has not attended school or college since Mar 1, 1940. Completed education through 8th grade. Born in Pennsylvania. Lived in the same house on April 1, 1935. Does not live on a farm. Was not at work for pay the week of Mar 24 – 30, 1940. Was not performing emergency work (CCA, WPA, etc) the week of Mar 24 – 30, 1940. Is not seeking work. Did not have a job or business. Is unable to work. Occupation is a coal miner in a coal mine. Number of weeks worked in 1939: 0. Income received: 0. Receives income greater than $50 or more from sources other than money wages or salary.
- It is interesting that the enumerator listed the occupation of coal miner for Mike. The instructions say to only list occupation for those who work, and Mike does not work in 1940.
- Michael and Annie have income other than a salary coming in, so perhaps Michael earned a pension for his work as a coal miner.
- The X. next to Annie is written on the census form and indicates that she answered the enumerator’s questions.
