1940 US Census - Dennis LEEHIVE


Analysis: Dennis LEEHIVE, age 75, is found in the 1940 US Census enumerated on 13 April 1940 and living with his daughter Elizabeth Leehive at 63 Henry Street in Kingston, Ulster County, NewYork. Dennis is listed as widowed.

Amazingly, Dennis is still working at age 75 (and worked 56 hours the week prior to 13 April 1940) as a watchman for several buildings.

Important data points and questions/theories:

  • When did Dennis Leehive's wife, Mary FITZGERALD, die? She was listed in the 1930 US Census.
  • Elizabeth was selected for the Supplemental question, being on line 55. Is there any insights to be gleaned from this data?
