1920 US Census - Julius Yunghans

While searching for the 1940 US Census, I was able to track down a few previous census records I had been missing.     Below is the 1920 US Census for Julius Yunghans.















Julius (line 92, second family from the the bottom) was living with wife Minnie (Kirsch) and their two children, Marie and Arthur in the city of Vincennes, Knox county, Indiana.

Julius was employed as a cigar maker, most likely working for his father, Emil Yunghans at the Yunghans Cigar factory.    The occupation of daughter Marie is listed as "sales woman" at a five and dime store.

Julius was the eldest son of Julia (Kolb) and Emil Heinrich Junghans/Yunghans and the grandson of Christliebe (Kuehn) and Carl Heinrich Junghans.

1930 US Census - Walter Junghans

Here is the 1930 US Census for my grandfather, Walter Junghans.























It appears Walter was living alone, even though it indicates "boarder".   He was employed as an order clerk for a poultry and barn equipment company in Fort Atkinson, Jefferson county, Wisconsin.

I had trouble tracking down this census as it was indexed as "Walter Junghaus" rather than the correct spelling of Junghans.

1910 US Census - Ernst Yunghans

Here is the 1910 US Census for Ernst Yunghans, the nephew of my great grandfather, Paul Richard Junghans.
















Ernst was the 4th child born to Julia (Kolb) and Emil Heinrich Yunghans (Yunghans).        Otto Junghans, Emil's brother was living only a few miles away.

Ernest was a boarder living at the home of H.F.R. Thieman and was employed as a teacher.

1940 US Census - Paul Junghans

Below is the 1940 US Census for my great grandfather, Paul Junghans (line 42).


















Paul was living at the home of his son, Paul Junghans Jr along with his daughter-in-law, Rosina (Billings) and their son Richard (line 41 above) in Fort Atkinson, Jefferson county, Wisconsin.

Paul Junghans Jr and Rosina are listed below (lines 39 & 40).     It is difficult to make out, but appears Paul Jr was working as a sales engineer for Barn Equipment.      Paul Sr had retired by 1940.
























A legible, blank 1940 census form can be found here.

Yunghans cigars

Last year I posted about the cigar company owned by Emil Yunghans, the eldest brother of my great grandfather, Paul Richard Junghans.

Here are some photos of the cigar boxes, provided by Daniel Yunghans, the great great grandson of Emil.










Norman Yunghans, the grandson of Emil later used the box to store nuts and bolts.

Carl Yunghans immigration

I may have found the passenger list for Christliebe (Kuehn) and Carl Heinrich Junghans'  second son, Carl Yunghans traveling from Bremen, Germany to New York City on the ship, Elbe.































There is a Carl Junghanz listed (2nd from the bottom) though Carl would have been 24 (not 26) at the time the ship arrived in New York on April 14, 1883.

While it's difficult to make out, the 1910 US Census indicates Carl immigrated in either 1882 or 1883.
