CHARLES H. KLUMP was born in New Jersey in 1881. By 1918 he had become the proprietor of a saloon at 11 South 3rd Street in Camden NJ. At the time of the 1920 Census he owned a home at 1374 Haddon Avenue, where he lived with his wife Marion.
When Prohibition was enacted in 1919, Charles Klump remained in business on South 3rd Street. He passed away in 1929. Marion Klump is listed as the owner of the bar in the City Directory for 1931. Besides the bar, he left Marion well taken care of, as by April of 1930 she owned an expensive for its time home at 347 Haddon Avenue in Collingswood, where she lived with her sister Alma Deegan.
Marion Klump retained ownership of the bar through at least the spring of 1934. By October of 1936 the place appears to have changed hands, and was operated by Joe O'Brien. Mrs. Klump still resided on Haddon Avenue at that time. Marion Klump later moved to 267 Cedarcroft Avenue in Audubon NJ, where she was living in the fall of 1959. Marion Klump never remarried. She died in 1963 and was buried in Harleigh Cemetery next to her husband.
