|The house that Grandpop built in Fox Chase, about 1930|
In the 1930 census, I found my grandaparents and my eldest uncle, Sam, living in this home. It was the only house on the street. There was an address in the census, so, my Dad and I decided to take a drive to try to locate it. The problem was that when I mapped the address, 257 Roslyn St in Abington Township, there wasn't an exact match. After staring at a map for a while and chatting with my Dad (He'd been by the house a few times over the years), we figured out that the road was now called Roseland Avenue in Rockledge and made a plan to go check it out. We drove around a bit and successfully located the house, not only had the street changed names, but the number was different, as well!
