60-DA Y 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 Nelsonís watch chain.

CHARLES H. PRICE, G.O.P. LEADER, DIES
Former Street Dept. Aide Succumbs at 73 to Heart Disease

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.
