Sycamore
Street


SYCAMORE STREET is another of Camden's "tree" streets, running east from Front Street to Haddon Avenue. At different times Sycamore Street intersections at 7th, 8th, and Louis Streets were hubs of Camden's African-American, Jewish, and Polish communities, respectively.

BABY'S BACK INJURED BY, FATHER'S AUTO

Howard Butler, 2-1/2, of 141 Sycamore street, suffered a possible broken back last night when he was struck by the car of his father, Sherman Butler, 33, in front of his home.

Butler told police he was backing the car at the curb. He felt a jar, and looking back, saw his son under the left rear wheel. He took him to West Jersey Homeopathic Hospital.

Gropes for Light, Man Is Killed by Fall Down Stairs

Stumbling as he groped for & light in the home of a friend, a South Camden man fell down a stairway in a Sycamore street home early today and broke his neck.

Howard Ashton, 45 years old, 1242 South Second Street was pronounced dead when admitted to Cooper Hospital shortly after 1 o’clock.

City Detective Rox Saponare went to the home of Alfred Marshman, 258 Sycamore Street, after detective headquarters had received a telephone tip that a man had fallen downstairs.

Saponare said Ashton and Marshman apparently had been drinking during the evening. They had retired to a second-floor bedroom, and Ashton apparently had started for the first floor when he fell.

CIRCUS 'ECHO' IN COURT

Armed with a contract and all set for a "clean up," Russell Fleming, 710 Sycamore Street, arrived at the scene of his work only to find the job had been usurped by a Philadelphian, Fleming told Police Judge Pancoast Saturday when he appealed to him to settle, an argument over the job. 

Fleming said he was given a contract by Hagenbeck-Wallace circus to clean up the circus grounds on State Street Friday morning after the circus had departed. For his work, Fleming said, he was to get the refuse, to be sold as fertilizer. 

He went to the circus grounds, he said, all set to go to work and found Henry Rothblath, 53, of 2549 Rees Street, Philadelphia, had already hauled away four loads. Rothblath refused to return the four loads of refuse, Fleming said, so he had him arrested.

Judge Pancoast decreed that Rothblath erred in hauling away the four loads of refuse and sent him to jail for 60 days.

917, 919, 921, and 923 were willed to John M. Welsh by my Great Grandfather John J. Welsh the builder. The large rear yards of 919-921 were used as a used firewood business by my Grandfather and father Edgar until the late 1950’s. All of the inventory was destroyed in the late 1950’s in a large fire. John M. Welsh (died 1936) and my Grandmother Catherine (died 1944) (nee Duey or Dewey). 917 was owned by John M Welsh Jr. and was lost to his ex-wife Helen Welsh/Helen Polanski in a divorce settlement. My parents lived in 919 and 921 until my father Edgar Welsh (died 1973) and Elizabeth moved in 1974. The 917, 919, and 921 homes were rented and burned to the ground sometime in 1978-1979. 921 was rented to my grandmother Anna from 1947-1973. My father told me that 923 was a mud house that collapsed in the 1920s. - Ed Welsh

A man and woman were injured at 3.45 p. m., yesterday when an automobile struck a parked car at Fortieth and Federal Streets, according to Pennsauken Township police.

Mrs. Stella Pukala, 22, of 1218 Atlantic Avenue, received cuts and bruises of the face. John Foltynski, 35, of 1168 Ross Street, suffered cuts of the eye and head. Both were treated at West Jersey Hospital.

They were passengers in a car driven by Stanley Czajkowski, 24, of 1133 Sycamore Street. Pennsauken police said Czajkowski's car collided with another owned by George F. Eisle, 4507 Chestnut Avenue, Pennsauken. Eisle charged Czajkowski with reckless driving. Police also charged him with driving without a license.

The Klopp Family

Adam Kolb Sr. was the proprietor of a bar at 302 Spruce Street. He died between April 5 1877, when his will was dated and April 23, 1877, when a document states that his wife “Mary Magdalena Kolb” is now executor of the deceased Adam Kolb’s estate. Adam’s will left his money and “real estate” to his wife Mary Magdalena Kolb for the remainder of her natural life. Upon her death, half was to go to the Trinity German Lutheran Church in Camden and half to the Children’s home in Germantown. Mary Magdalena could not write and signed with her mark. 

By 1880 the bar at 302 Spruce Street was no longer being run by the Kolb family, although Mary Magdalena may still have held title to the property.

Mary Magadalena Kolb remarried on August 29, 1878. Her second husband,  John Daniel Hahn is listed in Chew's 1878-1879 Camden City Directory as a hostler, residing at 21 North 4th Street. The 1878-1879 Directory shows John Hann at 1159 Sycamore Street. Subsequent entries in the City Directories are quite interesting, and point to a conclusion that Mary Magdelean Kolb and her second husband may have parted ways. The Howe’s Camden Directory of 1885–1888 lists "Kolb, Mary, widow of Adam, home 1159 Sycamore". Howe’s Camden Directory of 1884-85 has a listing for "Hahn, Daniel, home 618 N. Front". This indicated that John Daniel Hahn is living with his married daughter Christina "Anna" Dellmuth, whose husband, Henry Dellmuth owned a bakery. John Daniel Hahn died on February 11, 1886 in Philadelphia at the house of another daughter. According to the Camden Lutheran Church record he left his widow, Mary Hahn, exactly $1 in his will. Mary Magdalena Kolb Hahn died in June of 1889 and was buried at Old Camden Cemetery on June 27, 1889.

The two youths were convicted recently of the theft.
