Oscar and Ann Aderman family in 1940 Census
The national US Census in 1940 took place on April 1st. No foolin’! Oscar and Ann Aderman, my paternal grandparents lived in Niagara, Wisconsin, USA that year (and for many years). Grandpa was a crane operator at the time, according to the occupation column. Oscar and Ann’s youngest son, Bill, was not yet born and her father, Martin Boerner, Sr., was living with the family.
It was fun to see their neighbors on either side of the Aderman house. My father spoke often of the Papaich’s, immigrants from Serbia, and the Ponzios. Mary (Boerner) Ponzio was Ann (Boerner) Aderman’s sister, my father’s aunt. Dad had lots of stories of the cousins playing together.
