Census Sunday – 1930 U.S. Census for Charles E. Lowry and Family

We continue to trace back the family of Charles Edward Lowry. We started in 1940 and today we look at 1930. In 1940, the Lowry’s lived at 207 N Thornton and paid $31 per month in rent. Ten years earlier, they lived down the block and were paying $35 per month. I’m not certain when they moved. Early family photos I have show the house at 207 Thornton, not 106, which has since been torn down.
