43 South Allen Street, Albany, New York in the 1940 United States Federal Census

In 1961, my family purchased the first floor flat at 43 South Allen Street in Albany, Albany Co., New York, USA.  Eventually, my family purchased the second floor flat as well.  The house remained in my family for over 46 years until it was sold in 2007.

In the 1940 US Federal Census, the house (or at least one of the flats) was owned by Louis H. and Mary Rose Alliers.  Catherine Boylan rented the second flat, whether from the Allierses or someone else.  I suspect the Allierses owned the entire building, since they stated their dwelling was worth $6000 (an amount that was likely too large for just one flat) and also because Louis Alliers stated that he earned more than $50 from sources other than wages (possibly from renting the second flat).  There is no way to tell which flat was occupied by the Allierses and which was occupied by Miss Boylan.
