1940: In the Countryside

Lupe (Torres) Olguin and her husband, Thomas, lived on a farm in the Socorro census of 1940.

Lupe was the youngest child of Crespin and Andreita Torres. (So all the children alive in 1940 are accounted for on this blog – in three separate posts).

The Olguin family resided in Precinct 24 of Socorro – out in the country. Thomas was 48 years old. He had worked 52 weeks in the previous year. And in the final week of March 1940, he reportedly had worked 60 hours as a farmer.

Lupe was age 46. Two of their sons were living at home (one of them, Crespiniano, will marry and enlist in the Army in the coming years).

Thomas Olguin’s mother, Evarista, was living with the family. She was age 88.

Where were the Torres families and related families in 1930? Look at this 1930 Snapshot.
