Part 754h – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1910 Thirteenth US Census – Holmes Family – Lansford, Carbon County, Pennsylvania

20 August 2012

Good Day,

Getting The Pack prepped and ready for their morning scramble is at times quite a chore. Getting them to pay attention, get their business over and done, and keep them all walking in the same direction is certainly a mind-boggle when I haven’t fully awoken.

Well it is Monday morning and the street activity is enough to send one back to bed for at least another couple of days. First The Pack was interested; north, south, east, and west in a couple of cats meandering home from the nightly sojourns. Then the squirrels’ acrobatics in the oak trees heighten The Packs’ concentration. Next the neighbors seem to have all exited their homes at exactly the same time… a suburbia line up at the starting lines. Three pickups of earlier riser appointments. Next the two riding lawnmowers chopping the week’s growth of green lawns. Now a school bus, empty but for its dry run of the start of the scholastic season.

The Pack is attentive and yapping at every and any distraction, while tangling my legs in the weaving of their leashes. Promise of a great breakfast does not hurry up Taylor, Bella, Tinker, and Radar. And then the topper… The Pack is astounded. The old Dude from a couple of streets over has traded in his three-wheeler and comes put-putting down the middle of the street, strapped into his new motorized Hoveround. He waves… The Pack howls. And I just shake my head. Good morning, and breakfast.

And what did my early morning comic adventure have to do with genealogy? Nothing… but it is just the start of another day into my search for the Holmes Family Line and Ancestry.

Today’s first Post is a continuation of my following the Holmes Family and Ancestors in Pennsylvania. The date is 28 April 1910 and the Holmes Family is now, according to the 1910 US Federal Census living on the south side of Bertsch Street in the West Ward of Lansford Borough in Carbon County, Pennsylvania. There are six members of the Family in the household; great-grandparents John and Hannah, granduncles Warren, Richard, and Elmer, and grandmother Myrtle.

From The National Archives via the Internet through I have downloaded the image of Sheet No. 18A which enumerates the Holmes Family.

Using Clooz 3.0 I have included the information into my database and produced the following reporting – United States Federal Census Population Schedule, 1910 CUSPA000009.

I certainly appreciate the assistance from Helen and other family members and relatives regarding Holmes Family tales and history. These stories definitely help the course of my search and research. Definitely contact me if you have some and any family tales, information, data, and documentation.
