Appendix: 1920

Containing National Census Data for the
George (1869) SEDORY Families in 1920


In Streator:

    On January 28th, 1920, an enumerator for the FOURTEENTH CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES listed George (50) and "Susie" (Susanna; 50) Sedory as living on "S. Bloomington St." in "Reading Township" (with the name "Vermilion City" crossed out), "Livingston" County, Illinois, along with John (23), Mary (20), Emma (17), Susie (15), "Margret" (11), then listed under the name of Novotney, but living in the same house were: "Son in law" Andrew (29), "daughter" Anna (25) and Grand Daughters "Evelin" (6; the marks after the "n" are the enumerator's attempt to correct "Daughter" into Grand Daughter) and Viola (4). This data is from an original scan by NARA, Publication Number: T625, National Archives Catalog ID: 2353589, Roll: 0383, "Enumeration District No. 45, Sheet No. 11A".

    As mentioned in Chapter 1, both George and his son John are listed in columns 26-27 as laborers at a "Brick Yard" (Note: The place of birth for George, Susanna and their parents is incorrectly listed as "Austria" most likely because they, or the enumerator, were thinking of Slovakia as still being part of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire. But by 1920, it had become part of a new country called the Czechoslovak Republic.) It also states both George and Susanna immigrated to the United States in 1888, and became "Naturalized" citizens only 4 years later (1892). Explanations and data for every column are listed here.
