Description

The Sixteenth Unites States Census records for Monte Llano, Caye Province, Puerto Rico, for 1940. The census divides the population by name, age, sex, race, marital status, residence, home owned or rented, value of home or monthly rent, whether living on a farm, other residents of same address, relation to head of house, attended school or college after March 1940, highest grade completed, state or foreign country of birth, employment status, hours of work per week, duration of employment, and wages. Supplemental questions include the father and mother's birthplace, language spoken in home during childhood, veteran status, father's veteran status, social security, usual occupation and industry, class of worker, if women have been married more than once, age at first marriage if so, and number of children born.

A notable resident listed in this record is Gil Ramos-Rivera (1925-1996) Born on September 5, 1925, in Puerto Rico, Ramos-Rivera grew up the son of a military officer, living most of his early life on Henry Barracks in Cayey, Puerto Rico. His twenty-year career in the United States Army began on October 11, 1950, and lasted until November 1, 1970. He served in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and received a Purple Heart. After his retirement from the Army, he moved to Florida, where he spent the rest of his life. On March 17, 1996, Ramos-Rivera passed away at the age of seventy. The Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida, placed a memorial headstone in honor of Ramos-Rivera and his service.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
