Effie was born in Maryland, the others in Iowa. 1910 U.S. Census, Iowa City, Johnson Cnty, IA (T 624, Roll 408, ED 90, stamped pp. 206-B, 207).

      In 1920 the census records her parents, Louis J Baschnagel, 48, and Effie A, 45, and these children: "Catharine M," 18; Helen A, 16; Gertrude A, 14; Joseph A, 10; Agnes L, 5; and Mary Ann, 3. 1920 U.S. Census, Iowa City, Johnson Cnty, IA (T 625, Roll 496, ED 98, stamped p. 155).

      The 1930 census lists "L.J." Baschnagel, 58, "Effie," 56, and children: "Catherine," 28; "Helen," 26, Gertrude, 24; Joseph, 20; Agnes, 16; and "Marianne," 14. Catherine and Gertrude were "social service" workers in a "Social Agency." Helen was a hospital dietician. 1930 U.S. Census, Iowa City, Johnson Cnty, IA (T 626, ED 19, stamped p. 165).
    • In 1940 the census records Gertrude Baschnagel, 35, living with her parents, "Louis," 68, and "Effie," 66, as well as her sister "Mary," 24. The census indicates that Gertrude was married, but it lists her by her maiden name. It also indicates that she had been living in New York City in 1935. It does not show that she was employed. 1940 U.S. Census, Iowa City, Johnson Cnty, IA (T 627, Roll 1171, ED 52-17, stamped p. 161).

      Some confusion of names & data has been noticed, because of "another" Gertrude Dougherty.

Dougherty, born in MO about 1901, who was a maternity hospital orderly. They lived in St. Louis, MO, and had two sons, John F and Thomas J. However, according to her Social Security Application, her maiden name was Gertrude L. Stark.
