1918-1919 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 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.

 

Interested in other years already posted?

I’ll be adding more directory years over the upcoming days and weeks.

Bugler Bailey

GRAVESTONE: Lewis H. Bailey

Lewis H. Bailey’s gravestone is toward the northeastern corner of the Myrtle Cemetery in the little village of Myrtle (McKean County, PA) not far away from the town of Shinglehouse, PA on PA-Route 44.

TEXT on the stone says:

BUGLER

Lewis H. Bailey

Co. L

15 N.Y. Cavalry

From family sources I gathered at the time of the American Bicentennial, I have also learned a few more facts:

DOD: 28 Feb 1914, Brocton (Chautauqua County) NY

WIFE: Anna Louise Rathborne (born: in Ode Castle, Sweden),  (died: 19 Jun 1906, Brocton (Chautauqua County) NY), (buried beside Lewis in Myrtle Cemetery)

Lewis was father of Luella Consuella Bailey White (1864-1952) who would give birth to Clara May White Mix (1888-1965) (my great-grandmother).

His gravestone identifies his Civil War involvement. He was a bugler in the 15 N.Y. Cavalry, Co. L. with a rank of Private.

In the 1880 U.S. Federal Census, Lewis is identified as living in District 111 of Sharon Township in Potter County in Pennsylvania. Here are the pertinent facts listed in that census:

BALEY, Lewis. White. Male. age 43. born about 1837. He is the head of his house. Married to: BALEY, Anna. Lewis was born in New York state. His father was born in New Jersey. His mother was born in Connecticut.

Later, I discovered the 1890 Civil War Census listed him as “Louis H. Bailey” who served as a “musician.” Apparently he enlisted in the Union Army twice. First he enlisted in Co. D. 9th NY Cav. in Oct. 1861 and was discharged 9 Apr. 1862. His second enlistment began on 22 Dec. 1863 and he was assigned to the military unit identified on his gravestone. He is listed as being discharged on 9 Aug. 1865.

Many of my notes from the time I was in high school are simple records of what I learned from my grandparents and great-grandparents, so I have no citations listed. Lewis’s parents are two of those unnoted bits of information: Lewis’s father supposedly was named Barvillai B. Bailey, probably born in 1833. Mother was Mary Jane Bailey, born 1845 and died 1902. I have no maiden name for her.

1910 Hazel Hurst Fourth Graders

PHOTO: 1910 HazelHurst School Pix

This real photo postcard belonged to my wife’s paternal grandfather, Albert Housler. Since Albert was born 2 Jul 1897, I am assuming that he is not in the fourth grade in 1910 (he would have been aged 12-13!)

I would love some help here. If you can identify any of the kids, please tell me in the comments section. THANKS!
