Re: ESTLOW/ESTILOW family in New Jersey

In Reply to: Re: ESTLOW/ESTILOW family in New Jersey by Joy Gardner of 16

Joy, While searching the 1910 census for Cumberland County I found an ESTELOW family living at 358 Pearl St in Bridgeton City. I had a hard time reading the Head of the family name and thought it was "Mather W. ESTELOW." But since you mentioned a Matthew W. ESTELOW maybe I was wrong. Like I said I was only guessing the first name since the handwriting was so hard to read. He was 24 yrs of age on this census page. His wife Hannah was 23 and they had been married 7 years. Daughter Hannah W. (maybe a V?) was 6yrs old and son John was only 5. The children had both been born in PA. All other entries as far as birth places for individuals and parants were from NJ. Mather or Matthew was a worker in a glass factory. I know this is a lot of writing if it doesn't match but wanted you to have as much as possible to decide. Does it sound like they could be your family? There are more ESTELOW/ESTLOW families in the area. Let me know what you think. Rich
