Grandpa Maynes last job

I uploaded a story from Grandma Maynes about her husband Jack, our grandfather.  In it she mentioned that his last job was 'taking census for the US government.'. He died July 10, 1940  age 57.

The 1940 Census images were released on April 2, 2012 and are now being indexed. Here is the status.

This picture shows a page from the census where John A Maynes was the enumerator. The date is April 15, 1940.  He canvassed his home town of Butlerville including on this page his own family.   Very nice handwriting.  There are 18 pages for Butlerville at about 40 names per page.

Thirteen people including a daughter-in-law and the first grandson.  Even more impressive if you've ever seen the home. Address: Wasatch Blvd south of 7000.  Two rooms and an enclosed porch with a nearby ditch for running water.
