  • Documents
    1920 Census - Family of Willard Smith
    1920 Census - Family of Willard Smith
    Schoharie County, Township of Cobleskill (part of), dated 26 January 1920.

    Willard E. Smith age 47, wife Tressie (39), sons Howard (14), Jesse (12), Orson (10) (Chester (6), William (4 + 2 months), and Charles (43) Willard's brother, who was single. They lived on a farm on Mineral Springs Road, house was rented, both Willard and Charles were laborers on a dairy farm, working on their own account. Tressie immigrated to the U.S. in 1895 and was naturalized. She was born in Russia (her parents also) and in column 20 which asked for the mother tongue is written "LC" ....that also appears for her parents. Couldn't find any key as to what LC means
    1930 Cencus - Family of Willard Smith
    1930 Cencus - Family of Willard Smith
    Schoharie County, Township of Seward, dated 26 April 1930.

    Willard Smith, age 58, wife Tressie (49), sons Chester (16), William (14), and Charlie (56) Willard's brother, who is still single. Age at first marriage: Willard 33, Tressie 24. There wasn't any street or house number listed. Willard was a general farmer working on his own account, neither he nor Charles were veterans. Both Charles and William are listed as farm laborers. Tressie was listed as being born in Russia and came here in 1898 and was naturalized. Also, they owned a radio set...isn't that a funny question for the government to be asking? Also, under mother tongue for Tressie, someone printed what looks like "Hebrew" but it is a different handwriting from the rest and not too clear.
