Obed J.Janzen B: 1913 Death Oct 1976 Need Help

Classification: Query
Surnames: Janzen
I'm from Ohio where Obed was born. The 1958 City Directory showed his address as 7632 Mallard Dr., St Louis, MO. I have tried to find him in the 1940 census with no luck. I have tried to find his death noticed, no luck. Can anyone tell me if the above address is in the City of St. Louis. He was married to Josephine Stanley who passed away in 2000. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

The address 7632 Mallard Dr is in St Louis County, not the city of St Louis. In the 1940 census Obed Janzen is indexed as Obed J Jangen, living in state of Arkansas, White County, Incorporated Place: Searcy, Township: Gray. Living with him is his wife Josephine. He lists his 1935 location as Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri. Josephine lists her 1935 location as Ottumwa, Wapello County, Iowa.

Find-A-grave shows a Lina Janzen, died Oct 22, 1936, buried in Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri, age 55. This could be Obed's mother.

You are awesome. You have gathered more info in a day than I have in 3 years. I've been doing this for around 10 years. Obed was a brother to my father who died in 1945.
I am so very thankful. You also gave me the name of Obed's
son which has made me so happy. More research to keep me busy. I'm 80 and I can now enlarge me family's background.
