Edward W Ellis Atlantic city 1934/40
« on: Saturday 28 March 20 12:21 GMT (UK) »
At this time of great worry to us all, I would be grateful if one of my root chat friends could assist with the following.

I am searching for the death record of Edward W Ellis. He resided Atlantic City New Jersey with his wife Fanny(Fannie) in 1930 US Census. I believe he may have died 1935/40

I know that his wife Fanny died in Yorklyn Delaware around Nov. 1949 but I cant find either Edward W or Fanny in 1940 US Census records. Fanny was born Ireland 1878/84.

Thanks for any assistance

1938 Atlantic City Directory
Fannie Ellis (widow of Edward) furnished rooms 202 Franklin

1941 Directory
She's still there, but reference to Edward is left out.

but the info in the directories lagged behind actual circumstances a bit. I'll look for a few years down the line and see if she is there. also backward to see if it says when Edward died. Might not get to it until later today.

edit to add:
1946
Fannie F Ellis (wid Ed) at same address.

1938
Edward and Fannie both, at the same address

there aren't any directories for 1936 or 1937 at the site I am using, so ...

Here is Fannie in 1940 - age is out & birthplace is wrong but it's the right address ( 202 Franklin) :
