1920 US Census

Index to Wanless-like names

Source: www.ancestry.com

Results of search for Wanlace, Wan*l*s, Wau*l*s, Won*l*s, Wou*l*s, and War*l*s, plus Manl*s, Mandl*s, Hanl*s, and Handl*s, with some obvious wrong names removed.

Some of the following may not be really Wan(d)less-type names; I have not looked at each entry yet. And there are probably Wan(d)lesses in the census whose names are so badly mangled that they do not appear in this index. I omitted some Worles and Wardles entries that may in fact be Wanles and Wandles. Also keep in mind that some of the first names shown here are wildly incorrect – I have not gone through all of them, but have noticed several interesting decipherings of handwriting in the ones I have viewed. My comments are in the Comments column. There is a small table at the bottom of people who may be indexed as Wanless/Wandless but probably are not.

Sorted by Census Location – you can re-sort by any column by clicking on a column header.

Rejects

The following are probably not Wan(d)less names in the 1920 census, although they may be indexed as Wanless or something similar:

Wandelahs Adelaide 64 Missouri White Texas, Grayson, Sherman 72 10B 788 Looks like Wandelahr; parents b. Delaware & MO; dau. Adelaide married to Jones.
Wanlass Ama 42 Virginia White New Jersey, Monmouth, Neptune 96 6B 417 Hard to read. Could be Waulnas or Wauls__ or Han__; parents b. VA. The more I see it, the more the first letter looks like H.
Wanlass Bernel 18 Texas White Arkansas, Lonoke, Indian Bayou 168 2A 753 Looks like Warlters; 18-yr-old stepson.
Wanlds Melrose 19 Texas Mulatto Texas, Jefferson, Beaumont 84 3A 117 Looks like Waulds in census; the writer’s “n” and “u” are pretty clearly different.
Wanles Lydia V 47 self & parents b. Louisiana White Texas, Harris, Houston 48 2B 126 Looks like Wanler in census; the writer closes his final “s” nicely on several other names, but this one looks like it ends with “r”. Other occupants include a Jones niece & nephew and a bro-in-law & niece named Mulnhill or similar.

Cincinnati, Hamilton Co, Ohio (ED 430, sh 8b,15 January)
#1417 [street illegible – could be Corm—, Conemara, Chase…]
Wanless , Wm head, 32, self & parents b. Ohio, rents house, superintendent at m. shops
, Mamie wife, 30, b. Ohio, parents b. Germany
, Orville son, 1-7/12, b. Ohio
Distler, Rosina boarder, 70, wid, immig. 1853(?), naturalized 1858(?), b. Germany (parents too)
– this one looks like Wenlers to me
