Kind people,
I have a few questions that I'm looking for answers to. Will somebody be so good and put me out of my misery. I am currently trying to trace my Grandfathers years in the US. He left Ireland for Philly in 1928. We have found him in the US Census for 1930 PA. The street name where he was a lodger is listed as Hoop St.
The writing by the Census Enumerator isn't great but I think it is Hoop St. When I have checked online the nearest I get is Hoopes St. Also he is listed as being employed at Plush Mills. He was a tailor by trade. So if someone can help me please ... We know (?) he died in 1940 and finding where he is buried is another days work.
(a) Could it be that Hoop St and Hoopes St are one of the same.
(b) Was Plush Mills renamed Victoria Plush Mills.
Thanking you in advance.
