1940 Census–John Hibberd Bartram

April 24, 2012

402, as this next one was referred to. My Great Aunt Anna lived in this house. Although the memories have faded, I know I have been there many times. My grandmother and her sister were very close. Only a couple of weeks ago, we buried a member of this family, in the same cemetery where many of this household are buried.

Family was in this house in the 1920, 1930, 1940, and referred to as living there in 1935. I do have older pictures of this place.

Cheyney / Bartram connection, as well as link to the Henderson’s. My cousin has a Henderson Bible, with lots of great information in it.

This is a picture of the Son, in the 1940 Census. John Hibberd Bartram (1921 – 1993). The photo isn’t dated, but it may be about the time of the 1930 Census.

311 South Walnut Street was listed with this family in 1920, 1935, and 1940. It’s also on the same street that will appear as other family members over time

Franklin was a 1st Cousin, 2 times removed on my mother’s side of the family.

The house is across the street and less then half a block from where my mother’s parents lived, when I knew them. I may have actually been inside of this house.

I want to thank Dear MYRTLE and her daughter Carrie for the idea (AND Instructions) to put what was found in looking at the 1940 Census. Each of the “house” symbols has a story. Don’t forget to zoom in and out to put the area into perspective.

Please visit Dear MYRTLE‘s Blog and Carries Blog that are linked here.

You may have to zoom out and move the map around to see the yellow houses that are there.



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.
