Description

The Sixteenth Unites States Census records for Warren County, Glens Falls, New York, 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 in this record is George P. McCann (1899-1991). McCann was born on September 12, 1899, to Charles and Annie McCann, who were Irish immigrants. George worked as his father's butcher shop before enlisting in the United States Navy in 1917. He completed culinary school and became a ships' cook. After his service, he married Helen Galvin in New York. They had two children: Thomas Benard and Vincent. When Thomas married a Florida woman, George and Helen moved with them to Florida. George died on April 20, 1991, at the age of ninety-one and is buried at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program. 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.
