Captain Napoleon B. Aaronson

West Jersey Press - December 16, 1868

Philadelphia Inquirer - February 5, 1902

Usually referred to as N.B. Aaronson, Napoleon Aaronson opened  a flour and feed store in Camden in the summer of 1860. The 1860 Census shows him in Camden's Middle Ward and Directories show him at 21 North 5th Street from 1863 to 1867. The family consisted of N.B.  Aaronson, wife the former Sarah Ann Chew, and children Frederic, John, Sarah and Mary, and one relative of his wife.

In the summer of 1861, with the country engaged in Civil War, N.B. Aaronson and his son Frederic answered the nations call. When the Fourth New Jersey Volunteer Infantry Regiment was raised in August, N.B. Aaronson was appointed Captain of Company F, and Frederic was appointed First Lieutenant. In 1862 he saw action at the Battle of Gaines Mill, where he apparently was one of the 400 men captured. He and Captain John Reynolds were exchanged for Confederate officers in August. Now commanded by Colonel William B. Hatch, from August 26 to September 2 the Fourth New Jersey was part of General John Pope’s campaign in Northern Virginia, which culminated on August 30 with the Second Battle of Bull Run, and the ensuing Union retreat to  Centreville. On September 6 General McClellan began a campaign into Maryland. On September 14 the regiment and its sister units in the First New Jersey Brigade took part in the 
Battle of Crampton’s Gap. The monument there reads: 

"Late in the afternoon the Brigade advanced from the fields north and west of Burkittsville, charged up the mountain, carried this point, and followed the enemy to the west foot of the mountain. Loss in the Brigade 40 killed, 134 wounded."

On September 16-17 the First New Jersey Brigade too part in the Battle of Antietam.  The Brigade arrived upon the field from Crampton’s Pass about noon, and was formed for a charge upon the Confederate line just North of the Dunkard Church. The order for the charge was countermanded, and the brigade took position across this road, in support of the 6th Corps Artillery, the right of the brigade in woods North of the road, the left in the open field South, where it remained, under artillery fire, until the morning of the 19th.

Captain Aaronson resigned his commission on September 22, 1862. He returned to Camden, and briefly did some work for the State government in 1865. His wife died in 1868 and he appears to have left Camden afterwards. He lived for many years in Hammonton, New Jersey before returning to Camden after the 1900 Census to live with his daughter, Mrs. Mary Messick, on Spruce Street.

N.B. Aaronson died February 1, 1902 from a stroke and was buried at Evergreen Cemetery.

Charles Drew & Family

Charles J.V. Drew was born in England around 1825. He married Ann Grist in Birmingham, England early in 1849. Before the year was out a son, Frederick was born. They came to American shortly afterward. The 1860 Census shows the family in Philadelphia. They moved to South Camden in 1863. Besides Frederick, seven other children were born: Ann (1852-1853); Fanny, born 1854; John, born 1856; Emily Jane (1858-1858); Sarah Jane, born 1859; Emily, born 1862; and Frank, born 1866.

Charles J.V. Drew served briefly in the Union Army during the Civil War as a member of Company A, 1st Regiment, New Jersey Emergency Militia in the summer of 1864. By 1872 the Drew family had moved to 328 Spruce Street where he lived and kept a saloon. After the 1880 Census he moved his family and business across the street to 323 Spruce. Ann Gist Drew died March 2, 1881 and was buried at Old Camden Cemetery. Charles J.V. Drew joined her on January 27, 1887 when he passed away at 326 Pine Street, the home of his son Frank Drew. Charles Drew's death was reported in the West Jersey Press on February 2, 1887.

I am including a picture of a trowel with the Feriozzi name on it and a picture of my kindergarten graduation class from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in 1953. I also saw that my Uncle Miff (Alfred) Arcaini's friend Nino Marcozzi posted a picture from in front of my Arcaini grandparent's house at 329 Beckett. It's heartbreaking to see Camden the way it is today, but I have great memories of Camden the way it was when I was a kid. I remember walking down Broadway with my Dad going to the movies with him and seeing Santa at Hurley's. I also remember the grocery store on the corner of 5th and Spruce, Falconiero's. Fred owned it and Pauli was his son. I remember Pauli's daughter Sandra would come over to our house dig in the dirt with me when we were 3 or 4.

We lived with my grandprents, Ernest Feriozzi who owned and operated Feriozzi Construction Company and my grandmother Maria "Mary" Feriozzi. We all lived at 905 South 5th until my grandfather moved all of us to 521 Spruce in about 1953 which became the base for the construction company. I don't know how long prior to my birth they owned the house on 5th street, but the 1940 census had my grandparents and all of their children living there. The children (my uncles) were Anthony (Tony), Oswaldo(Ozzie), and Guido. My mother was Helen and my aunt was Adriana(Adri).

60-DAY SENTENCE GIVEN IN THEFT OF WATCH

Sixty days in the county jail was the sentence meted out to Wilmer Brown, 52, of 3002 Thompson Street, when he was charged in police court yesterday with stealing a watch.

Arrested on complaint of Martin Nelson, 561 Spruce Street, Brown denied the charges and said he knew nothing of the timepiece. Nelson testified that he went to a house on Cherry Street near Sixth with Brown and fell asleep. His watch was taken while he slept, he said. He admitted he had been drinking.

William Pollard, of 751 Cherry Street, said he was in the back yard of the house on Cherry Street when Nelson and Brown appeared. An hour after they entered the place, he said, Brown asked him for a pair of pliers to cut it chain.    

In sentencing Brown, Police Judge Pancoast said he believed the man wanted the pliers to cut Nelson’s watch chain.

Charles H. Price, 73, veteran Republican political leader in the Sixth Ward and a former assistant street commissioner, died at his house, 564 Spruce Street, yesterday of heart disease.

Mr. Price had been ailing for two years but his condition did not become precarious until last Sunday. He had an attack on that date which weakened him and compelled him to remain indoors.

He was lying on the couch in the living-room of the house yesterday when he was taken with another attack, while his sister-in-law, Miss Delia Heron, was seated in the room with him. Miss Heron hurried to summon a physician, but Mr. Price passed away shortly after the attack.

He was born in Smyrna, Delaware, coming to Camden when a baby. Mr. Price was employed as an oil cloth maker for years, then, went into politics. When Alfred L. Sayers was street commissioner, Mr. Price became his assistant, remaining in the highway department until pensioned.

Mr. Price was a member of the Camden Lodge of Elks and the Sixth Ward Republican Club. Funeral services will be held from 564 Spruce Street at 11 a. m. Wednesday. Burial will be in Arlington cemetery.

Hi. My name is Ronald Troutman, I am the youngest son of Edward and Elnora Troutman who once resided at 759 Bella Place. I in fact was born at that location. I remember most of the persons listed as former residents. I had five brothers and three sisters. Five members are deceased. Four of the male members were police officers in the City of Camden. Edward, William, John, and myself. My oldest sister still lives in East Camden, my youngest sister lives in West Berlin. My only living brother James lives in Parkside. I recall each night the service man coming around to light the gas light in Bella Place. I should mention that also we moved from Bella Place to 751 Spruce Street  That location was the corner entering Bella Place. I went to Kindergarten at Mt. Vernon School but transferred to Liberty School in the first grade in 1946. That year was the first that black children could attend.  They were the good old days. I will close by saying that it is nice to be able to go on the internet and find so much information about the City and its residents former and current.

The entire 900 block of Spruce Street is gone to facilitate I-676 but this is me at my house back in 1958. The 900 block was great. We also had a garage owned by George Barnes next to the railroad where we played stick ball, red rover, hide and seek, red light green light, and other games. My dad put in the picture window. During summer nights we watched TV on the porch and chatted with neighbors. Loved it!
