their parents. His occupation was listed as proprietor of a tavern.
She had no occupation at that time. The address of their home was 2301
James Street, Syracuse, New York. The house, which may still be there,
was located, according to MapQuest, near the intersection of James Street and Grant Boulevard."

"The tavern proprietor is listed in the 1920 census
