May Utenage & Jasper DiPaolo

1930 Census
May is a boarder in a house on Cherry Street in the Hartford Village of the Wood River township of Madison County Illinois. She lives with 3 other women. She is 19 and works as a swabber at the Shoe Company. She has not yet gotten married.

1930 Census
Jasper is living with his parents in Ward 1 of the Wood River Township of Wood River City in Madison county Illinois. Jasper is 21 and has not yet been married. He was born in Argentina. Both of his parents were born in Italy. He has 2 brothers, one was also born in Argentina and the other was born in Missouri. He also speaks Italian. Jasper works as a laborer at the Shoe Company.

1940 Census
Jasper is living with his parents at 433 Old St. Louis Road in Ward 1 of Wood River. His youngest brother still lives at home. Jasper has put down that he is single, but he is either still married or divorced. Jaspers 2 children are also living with them - Johnny is 9 and Virginia is 7 years old. Jasper is now working as a barrel filler at the refinery.

I still have not found May on a 1940 census, so I am not sure where she is at.

May Utenage DiPaolo & Ted Snider

In April 2014, I spoke with May´s daughter, Virginia. She told me about her marriage to Ted. All she could tell me was that she lived with him for a long time and then they finally got married, but it did not last because he was a heavy drinker.

May Utenage DiPaolo Snider & Robert James Elson

May married Robert in 1956 and remained married to him until his death in 1986. While married to Robert, she re-connected with her daughter, Virginia. May and Robert eventually bought land in Brighton, Illinois near Virginia and her family. They both lived there until their passing.
