My grandfather, Henry Simon Keller, lived in Milwaukee according to the 1940 census. He was in the CCC camp during the 1940’s. I suspect he was in the CCC camp while in Milwaukee. His wife and Kids lived on a farm in Marinette or Marinette Township during this time.
Do you have a list of men who were in the CCC camp in the Milwaukee area during this time.
I do have a photo of him in his CCC uniform.
