1940 Census–Henry Russell Worthington

April 26, 2012

There is no street address, but I know where this is. The 1940 Census called it Uwchlan, Chester, Pennsylvania, Enumeration District 92 – Family 73.

My Grandparents, and all but one of their children were listed.

The house was part of the Worthington Orchards, on U.S. Route 100.

This is the Rt 100 side of the house. (Photo not dated)

This next picture is of my Grandmother, keeper of the Garden that was in front of her.

Thanks to Google Maps, a view of what was the Driveway, from Route 100 to the back of the house as seen above. The driveway above is covered with snow, but it was just up the hill from what’s left of the driveway today.

1940 Census–Henry and Louise Worthington

April 22, 2012

Their first, rented house for $35.00 / month. Didn’t even know they lived here:

At first I couldn’t find them. I started with looking for them with their parents, but they had married in 1939. I knew that Dad had built his house on the farm in Lionville.

So, I really had to look for them.

The right half of the building is 223 South Walnut.

Oh, it’s for sale.

Facebook and Blogs

February 7, 2012

As you might know, I just returned from Salt Lake City, UT and Roots Tech 2012. Lots of topics, talks, chatting, looking a techie stuff and lots of other things, including talking to other Genea-Bloggers.

We heard a lot about Social Networking in many formats.

About an hour ago, My friend Midge Frazel, of Granite In My Blood, simply posted, on FaceBook “Quaker Family: Small Breakthrough”. Since I read and follow her blogs, I had to look, especially with my Quaker Roots.

Her “small breakthrough” had a link to the Quaker “Monthly Meeting” in Adrian, Michigan. I know that place. I opened my family file, went to Adrain in my file to verify who had an event there.

Elizabeth Willits married Samuel Leeds in Adrain. Elizabeth is my 2nd Great Grandmother.

Midge continued to say to do a Google Search in Google Books, as that is how she found more information. She posted a link http://www.michmarkers.com/startup.asp?startpage=L1844.htm

The Google Search found this article:

Friends’ review: a religious, literary and miscellaneous journal, Volume 31 and on page 825 was this article.

Willits-Leeds-Marriage

Samuel Leeds was her second marriage. She had previously married Henry Wilson Worthington.

Lesson Learned: The value of Social Media.
