1924 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 1924 Kane Directory.

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 

69-Clark, Chas S (Ella S.), cutting foreman, AmWGCo, h115 Clay

69-Clark, Clyde (Mabel) emp AmWGCo, h654 Dawson

69-Clark, Earl, emp Sakura, bds 511 Welsh

69-Clark, Emma, student, bds 14 Bottle

69-Clark, Fred L. (Mabel) clerk, h120 Hacker

69-Clark, Geo (Pearl) lab, bds 632 Dawson

69-Clark, Wm F (Ora) emp Silver Co., h 607 Park Av

100-Hoke, John (Florence) emp AmWGCo, h 508 (up) Hacker

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

[Durant/James City Directory]

217-Clark, C L, leaseman

[Mt. Jewett Directory]

242-Clark, Mrs. Carrie, hk’pr, bds Kistler Ave

242-Clark, Harold, emp tan’ry, bds Kistler Ave

242-Clark, W B, sta fireman, h Kistler Ave

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

Interested in other years already posted?

Four Narrowly Escape Death in Fire 1924

Today’s genealogical item is from November 1924, although I do not know which newspaper ran the stories. One of the men identified, John Mix, was my great-great grandfather.
