Henry Lester McCLENDON (born: March 31, 1882 - April 1966, death date is from SSDI)
NOTE: the SSDI lists he birth date as March 30, 1882 , not March 31, 1882 as on the SS-5 Form.
Henry Lester McCLENDON's parents were John (?) McCLENDON and Betsy JENKINS. Henry was white and worked at the Great Southern Lumber Co. and he was paid semi-monthly. He was widowed. His birth date was March 31, 1882 and he was born in Bailey (misspelled - Baley), Tangipahoa Parish, LA. (Tangipahoa Parish is right next to Washington Parish)
On Oct. 20, 1940 he was 59 years old when he filled out the SS-5 form, and he lived in Bridge City, (?? Rte. 1 ??), Westwego, LA. (This last address is a little confusing since Bridge City and Westwego are cities in Jefferson Parish, LA). You could probably go to the News Orleans, LA Public Library and look him up in an old "City Directory" (a.k.a., phone book).
It appears that he signed his name with an "x" and that two witnessed also signed the form.
See: Louisiana 1895 Map at URL: http://www.livgenmi.com/la1895mp and note that Jefferson Parish is the pink area just below Lake Pontchartrain.
I wondered if Henry Lester McCLENDON (March 31, 1882 - April 1966) was a brother of L. F. or Leon "Lonnie " Frank McCLENDON (March 3, 1887 - December 9, 1919) because of the "Lester" given name run in that family.
See: Leon F. (Frank) McCLENDON web page at URL: http://mcclendon.rootsweb.com/mcclendon/Leon.html.
SS-5 form (Application for Social Security Number / Card) Requests
If you want photocopy of any of your people's SS-5 forms (Application for Social Security Number / Card), just go to RootsWeb's "advanced search" Search the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) and type in their Social Security Number (or use the advanced search feature to find their Social Security Number), then click on the SS-5 Letter link and a letter will be generated for you to send off for a copy. Use one form per person. You may submit more than one request at a time, but don't overwhelmed them.
When you receive the photocopy (in 8 - 10 weeks or longer), it will look like something like this: HenryLesterMcClendon.gif who may be related (for example, a brother) to Leon Frank McCLENDON's grandfather, Leon Frank "L. F. or Lonnie" MCCLENDON. Sometimes, however, you'll receive other documents related to request for benefits, etc. instead of the SS-5 form.
