I came across your post as I was looking for info about my fathers family. You were living in Downers Grove when his family was there? According to the census reports from 1930 and 1940. The William Jensen family. At the time of the 1940 census they were living on N Florence or Cumnor Rd off Ogden. They had 5 children living at home and 1 infant that died at 2 days old in 1939. My father was adopted out in 1941/1942 and I can't find any more info on the older children after 1940. I'm wondering if they were all adopted out after a tragedy maybe? Their names: parents: William and Rose (Rosamond), in 1940 the children were ages: Lillian 12, William 10, Sherwin 6, Shirley 3, Nora 2, the infant that passed was named David and my fathers birth name was Kenneth (born in 1941).
I am desperate for any info...Thank you!
