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.
As the house is today (04/20/12)
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.
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.
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.
Louise Strode Worthington passed away last night in her sleep.
