1930 US Federal Census - Ole Alfred Knutson

I had posted the 1910 and 1920 US Federal Census for Ole and Mari Finnestad's grandson, Ole Alfred Knutson but had a difficult time locating the 1930 Census.

By the time of the 1930 Census, the Watertown State Hospital changed its name to East Moline State Hospital. The hospital also fell within two areas, Hampton township and a second in the city of East Moline. Alfred's fell within the Hampton township and I had been looking through the city of East Moline's census records.

Alfred was never released from the hospital but did work as a steamfitter, most likely at the hospital. Alfred passed away on January 8, 1934, just under four months from his 52nd birthday.

Alfred was the son of Elizabeth and Ole Andreas (Andrew) Knutson.
