Edwards


SAMUEL EDWARDS was born in Pennsylvania around 1879.  

The 1920 Census shows Samuel Edwards as living at 539 State Street, and working as an title examiner in a law office. He was by then married, and with wife Rose had one daughter, Helen, aged six. Another daughter, Ruth, was born shortly after the census was taken. The Edwards home was burglarized in February of 1928. During these years his neighbor at 513 State Street was prominent lawyer Camden lawyer Samuel J.T. French Sr. and his family. 

Active in Republican politics, he served on the Camden County Board of Freeholders from Camden's 10th Ward in 1930 and 1931. 

The Samuel Edwards family was still living at 539 State Street when the 1936 New Jersey Bell Telephone Directory was compiled. The family was no longer in Camden when the 1947 City Directory was published.
