Where Will Anna Habben Be In 1940?

The image above is part of the 1940 census enumeration district map for Hancock County, Illinois, obatined at  Ancestry.com. The maps they are on the National Archives website as well


My great-great-grandmother was living in Elvaston, Illinois. I don't have her address, but if my memory served, she lived near the Presbyterian church, which I think is in the eastern portion of the village. 


Elvaston has two census enumeration districts in 1940--because it is split in two townships. Montebello for the western part of the village (district 34-19) and Elvaston (district 34-27) for the eastern portion. 


Gotta watch those township and county lines.
