One of the neatest things I discovered a few years back in the Kane, PA library was a series of city directories. At the time I was exploring my wife’s ancestors with the last names of BURROWS, CLARK, DIPPO, HOKE, and HOUSLER. Here are my notes on people with those last names that I discovered in the 1918-1919 Kane Directory.
The asterick (*) was used to denote a person who was absent due to war work. (World War I)
Information appears in this order:
page #, last name, first name, occupation, address
30, Clark, Caroline, emp. Holgate Co., bds 2nd fl’r 47 Fraley
30, *Clark, Chas L., h320 Tionesta
30, Clark, Charles L. (Utica), teamster, h311 Oak
30, Clark, Mrs. Frank, wid, h40 Fraley
There were sections for outlying towns that included some of the family names I was researching as well:
BURROWS DIRECTORY (Sargeant Station on P.R.R.)
199, Burrows, Henry, packer
JAMES CITY DIRECTORY
207, Clark, Leroy, lab
MT. JEWETT DIRECTORY
217, Clark, Wm., watchman
There were no entries for Dippo, Hoke, or Housler.
