|SSN Application - William Jesse Wallen - 14 Mar 1937|
Saturday, September 29, 2012
This application for a social security number was filled out by my paternal grandfather, William J. Wallen in March of 1937 when he still worked for Electrolux in Greencastle, Indiana. He and my grandmother had been married 17 years and they had three young children.
When my parents married, my Grandfather Bill must have talked up Electrolux to my mother because after our family was finally able to afford such a high end vacuum cleaner, it was the only brand my mother would ever own.SHARE
