April 13

Went to Patsy's today and got commodities.  Set for a few days now.

Patsy and the weather channel say we have storms headed this way.

No baby goats yet.

Donita Plowman sent me and email. She is wanting to join the DAR.

April 12

Garden bounty.  Spinach, radishes and green onions.  I had blackeyed peas, spinach and cornbread and milk with radishes.

Even cooler today.  Tomorrow last day of work for the week.

I got the first 12 marker results from our Canadian Peter Powell descendant and it tells us that we are in no way related.  We are not even in the same Haplogroup.  We are Rbl and he is in the J group.  Live and learn.

April 10

Today was a little cooler.  I think I will wait a week or so to plant tomatoes.  Actually, it was not that cool, down to around 50 degrees, but after being so warm it feels cool.

I think the little white goat will be having babies sometime in the next week.  And, I think she might have twins as big as she is.

Two more days and then the weekend.  Weather man says it may rain this weekend.

In the news in our state, they fired their football coach at UofA.  I did not think they would.  Guess I was wrong.  First time for everything.

April 10

The basket in the back it for Hannah and the truck is for Robert.  

This is a strawberry cookie jar that I got from either Patsy or Aunt Betty.  They both gave me one and one broke, but I do not know which one.  I had George drill some holes in the bottom and made a planter for my deck table.  I think it is really pretty.

This is the petunias in the old wash kettle that Helen drug out of the cave.

1940 census

For Betty, Patsy and Winnie. now has all the 1940 census images online, if you want to look.  They have the townships listed by name, so it is not as hard to find the right township at least in Carroll Co. where we know the locality names.

And pictures by Hannah.

This is from the 1932 Sunny Lane school census.

And so is this.  I have these census sheets for 1932 through 1948, although 1942 and 1945 are missing.  Each year from 1932 through 1938, R. M. Powell filled out the census for his family and signed at the bottom.  This is 1932 and for Aunt Fleta he wrote 1917 and then wrote a 6 over the 7.  You can tell he decided on 1916 because of the age 15 figures out to 1916.  In 1933 he has 1916 age 16, 1934 1917 with a 6 written over the 7, age 17. And in 1934 he has Willis as 1916 with a 5 written over the 6.  In 1935 he has Fleta as 1916 age 18 and Truman is gone from the census as he 'aged out.'  In 1936 he has Fleta 1917 age 18.  In 1937 he has Fleta 1916 age 20 and Willis is not listed as he 'aged out.' In 1938 Fleta is not listed.  In 1939 through 1948 R. M. Powell does not have any children on the Sunny Lane census.  I think from 1939 on, the children that went to school went to Green Forest.  Since the family lived in the Sunny Lane school district, I think the children under age 20 were supposed to be listed on that district's census.

I think it is clear that Grandpa was confused about the year of Fleta's birth.  The other children's dates are the same each year.
