Also enumerated in the household were Paul's sister, Carrie Heaton, and Gertrude's sister, Florence Wyon. Carrie was 39 years of age and worked as a bookkeeper in a steel office; and Florence was 35 years of age and worked as a bookkeeper in a paint store.2
Census US 1940*2 April 1940Gertrude L. Heaton was enumerated on the 1940 census taken on 2 April 1940 at Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio. The family's surname was transcribed as "Heston" by Ancestry. Gertrude was 47 years of age, a widow, and owned her home, which was valued at $5,000. She reported she had lived in the same house on 1 April 1935. (We note the census taker transposed her address so it read 597 and it should have been 579. By comparing the homeowners and addresses on the 1940 census with those on the 1930 census, we were able to recognize the mistake. She lived in the same house in 1930 also.) Her three children were enumerated with their mother in 1940, and were all attending school. Marian L. was 15 years old; Charles W. was 14; and Roland P. was 12. Also residing with Gertrude in 1940 was her sister-in-law, Carrie E. Heaton, who was 54 years of age, single, and a clerical worker in a steel fabrication company.4
Death*20 November 1978She died on 20 November 1978 in Mahoning County at age 851,5
Burial* and was buried with her husband in Fountain Block A of Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, Youngstown.1
