Hibbert Hobbs - 1940 Census

The 1940 Census is now available! Like so many people, I wasn't able to access it on the release date last week but this week things seem to be working just fine at least on ancestry.com which is the site I used for viewing it.
The first thing I did was take a peek at Logan County West Virginia to see if I could find my father. And I did. He was living with his brothers in a house in Omar, and working as a tippleman at a local coal mine. Here is the data:

1940 Census for Sandy Bottom (unincorporated place),census for Lower Omar, Logan County, West Virginia:
Hibbert Hobbs, age 20, brother, b. WV, 8th grade education, living same place in 1935, tippleman.
Herbert Hobbs, age 20, brother, b. WV, 8th grade education, 9th grade education, living same place in 1935, tippleman.
Herman Hobbs, age 19, brother, b. WV, living same place in 1935, tippleman.
