    Notes 
    • 1900 Census lists Hattie as Annie. This could be a mistake or she could go by both name....Also states that she has been married for 17 years....

      1910 states that Hattie has been married for 21 years and Mervin has been married for 27 years... could this be a mistake.. 21 years would make the married in 1889. Could this be why I am unable to obtain a marriage certificate.

  • Notes 
    • In 1930 Ward Killmer is in the Hudson County Tuberculosis Hospital inSecaucus, New Jersey

      He is also listed as head of household on April 7th 1930, but there is an (ABT) by his name.
      This means absent.
    • 1940 Census for Jersey City Ward 7 SD# 13, ED#21-166 Sheet 5B, Ward is head of household. Alice (McCarthy) listed as the wife and the one that presented the information to the Census taker. Children are Arden, Daniel, (odd how he is listed here as Daniel, I was with the understanding he changed his name while in the military. He must have wanted this name for a while) Mary and Bernice. They are renting a house on 244 Princeton Ave and paid $22.00 Rent. Ward will die 4 years later.

      1930 - Census for Jersey City, Ward 4, ED # 9-40, SD # 7 Sheet 10B, Father Ward has (AB) next to his name,I think this might mean he was absent when the census was taken. They are lving at 358 York St and paying $20.00 Rent. He is listed as an unemployeed Steam Fitter
      also living there is my Grandmother with her children Arden, Ward jr (who later becomes Daniel) Mary and Myrtle (Lucille Myrtle Killmer) Mary McCarthy is also living there... (Nana (Alice) Sister.)

      1930 - Census for Secaucus Town, Ed 9-355 SD # 6 Sheet 2B Hudson County Tuberculosis Hospital Ward is listed as a patient. This might explain the (AB) by his name in Jersey City

      1920 Census for Bayonne City ED 11 SD 4 Sheet 11B listed as H Ward age 32 widowed (which cant be true since i have been in touch with someone that was related to Annie Snyder
