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.

Having hear of the agreement between the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Ancestry.com, I was wondering IF or when I might find something of interest to me.
Was cleaning up my mother’s record in my file, adding Photos of the houses that I had taken on Friday, I noticed a shaky leaf, in fact 4 hints to look at. A record from the U.S. Cemetery and Funeral Home Collection [database on-line] Provo, UT, USA, Ancestry.com Operations, Inc, 2011. That was cool, had that. But I was totally taken aback with the next hit.
This is the entry, on the page, from the Church Registry, of my mother’s Baptism.
The very interesting thing here, is that on Friday, past, I took this photo:
I know that Font, both my brother, father and I were Baptized at this same font in 1949. I just happened to take this picture and to find this Church Record is awesome.

312 Price Street shows up in the 1930, 1940, and referred to for where the family lived in 1935. Joseph Worrell Strode is my 1st Cousin, twice removed.

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.

This is the first in a series of blog posts of Photos relating to the 1940 Census.
Here is the 1940 Census for this household:
There is a couple of issues here: The wife’s name is not Louise. Louise was not 45 at the time. I will find the wife, my mother, elsewhere in the 1940 census.
Two people are missing, my grandmother and my aunt, as can be seen in the 1930 Census.
Mary L Million was a maid in 1930 and was confirmed to be by my mother before she passed away.
I confirmed with my aunt, that she was still at the above address in 1940, as she was in high school and living at home.
Here is a photo taken in 2012 of that house as recorded in the 1940 Census. Will have to work to get a better one.
However, here is a picture of the same house in 1929, which would be just before the 1930 Census as reported above.
Next to the house is a barn and this was taken in 1938, just before the 1940 Census.
In 1999, the barn looked like this.
