1921-1922 Kane Directory

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 1921-1922 Kane Directory.

The asterick (*) was used to denote a person who was absent due to war work. (World War I)

Many of the business references (emp Pl G Co) means that person worked at that business but I do NOT know what most of those abbreviations stand for.  (The example here is Plate Glass Co., but that’s all I know for these.)

“h” = home at …          “bds” = has a bed at …

Information appears in this order:

page #, last name, first name, (wife) occupation, address 

31, Clark, Chas S., (Ella S.) foreman, cutting dept, Am W G Co, h115 Clay

31, Clark, Christ, cutter, bds Hotel Lamont

31, Clark, Clyde, (Mabel), emp AmWGCo, h654 Dawson

31, Clark, Frederick S, student, bds 115 Clay

31, Clark, Leroy, (Adelias), emp Pl G Co, h120 Oak

There were sections for outlying towns that included some of the family names I was researching as well:


208, Clark, Leroy, lab


236, Clark, Marion, teacherWm., watchman

There were no entries for Burrows, Dippo, Hoke, or Housler.

Interested in other years already posted?
