Ham, 53, his wife May, 42, and 6 siblings: Oran, 18;  Elsie Mae, 13; son Lindy, 11; Clarence, 8; Jimmie, 6; and Vera, 1.  All were born in Texas.("United States Census, 1940," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K49Y-FM4 : accessed 9 May 2016), Harold Ham in household of Ben C Ham, Whitsett, Justice Precinct 5, Live Oak, Texas, United States; citing ED 149-5, sheet 1B, family 16, NARA digital publication T627 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2012), roll 4095.)

Is this the family? If so, why don't you create profiles for them to make it easier to find and record info?
