Thank you for your help. The information includes Tewksbury, MA as listed below. :)
This is her. Thanks for your help. What type of record is this?
It looks like it might be from the Social Security Death Index. Betty?
Thank you, I got so excited that I skipped over some of the details. hehe
Yep. Social Security Death. It lists mother and father of Gertrude including mother's maiden name.

I love helping. I think everyone here does.

Likewise. :)

What sort of information are you looking for on her?  Ancestors?  Descendants?  I located a Gertrude Dixon on an ancestry tree, daughter of Ernest Leroy Dickson and Esther Frederica Moller.  She married George Aloysius Hill and had son James and daughter Ethel. 

Ernest is shown as the son of James and Augusta Dickson from Massachusetts, while Esther shows as the daughter of Gustav Moller and Emma Lorentzen, both from Norway to Massachusetts.  I can't vouch for the accuracy, but it gives you something to work from.

Ernest & Esther appear, with daughter Gertrude age 7, on the 1920 census in Tewksbury, Middlesex, MA (Ref: Year: 1920; Census Place: Tewksbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts; Roll: T625_719; Page: 11A; Enumeration District: 469; Image: 525).  Other children are Frederick L, age 16; Florence age 12; Louis age 1-5/12.  Ernest is age 38; Esther age 35.

Gertrude's on the 1940 census (Ref: Year: 1940; Census Place: Tewksbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts; Roll: T627_1618; Page: 6A; Enumeration District: 9-500), age 26, with daughter Ethel age 3.  She's renting a home for $8/month & is a mother's helper.  She completed school through 5th grade.  It's shows her as married, but she's head of household with no male living with her & her daughter.

I'm looking at the 1930 census record of Ethel Murray in Tewksbury, where Gertrude Dixon, 16, is boarding. There's a 4-year-old Jean Dixon (female) also there. Too old to be Gertrude's daughter. A younger sister? There's also an Albert Smith, one year, 4 months, enumerated in same house as boarder.
Yes. Please excuse my memory.
According to some adoption records for a baby my grandma gave up, George's parents were Herbert and Sadie. The closest names I have found where he was born in Maine are Charles H. Hill and Sallie Bell Lombard. Are these the names for the 1930 census?
Darlene Athey Hill, did you find the information from a family tree of Hansen or Tolsrup?
Anna, send me a private message, and I'll respond via email with a copy of the 1930 census I found.

No, the 1930 census I found does not have Herbert and Sadie as George Hill's parents; the census matches the online family tree on Ancestry.com and has another George and a Mary as parents. But I'd treat that online tree with great skepticism at this point; I've already discovered one error.

But the 1930 census I did find is still intriguing.

Do you know if your George Hill ever worked in the mills?

There’s a  George W. (age 31) and Sadie A Hill (age 23) on the 1910 census in Jaffrey, NH with son George E. Hill, age 5, born Massachusetts; other sons Walter A (3), Robert F (2), William J (3/12), and father-in-law William H. Bacon (age 65, born NH) (so this is Sadie’s father). (Ref:  Year:  1910; Census Place: Jaffrey, Cheshire, New Hampshire; Roll: T624_860; Page: 20B; Enumeration District: 0036; FHL microfilm: 1374873)  Others have put notes that William Bacon’s last name is either Berken or Barber as opposed to Bacon...

Excuse me, I found George Hill to be a boarder in Massachusetts in 1930. This makes sense because he was born in Maine around 1909 or 1907. I believe the abbreviation for Maine and Massachusetts or the whereabouts were often misconstrued. Just the same as Tewksbury, Mi, Ma... Mi stands for the county of Middlesex.
Anna, how do you know George was born in Maine?
Darlene, I know that George was born in Maine because the information is listed on the adoption records- It's what he told the agency.
I'm not sure that I ever figured out how to message you. hehe I hope you've had a wonderful year! :-)

Yes, this is her. :-) I know she had a daughter named Ethel. Do yo know anymore? My maternal grandpa was George. He bailed on Gertrude and my grandma when their daughters were just babies. I'd like to find out more of Ethel and any of her offspring as we share the same blood. :-) Thanks for your swift response and thanks in advance.
