Cornog


ALBERT LISBIE CORNOG was born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania on October 12, 1886 to Charles Cornog and his wife, the former Mary Cassdy. He was the second of six children, coming after older sistet Annie May and before Marguerite, Ruth, Andrew, and Charles Cornog Jr..  The family had moved to New Jersey by 1892 when daughter Marguerite was born. Charles Cornog worked as house painter until appointed to the Camden Police Department by then-Mayor Cooper B. Hatch.

City Directories show the Cornogs at 724 Clinton Street in 1892 and 1893, 760 Division Street in 1895 and 1896, 834 Spruce Street in 1897. A news article from 1897 shows the Cornog family at 830 Spruce Street, the directory address is probably the correct one. The family was at 742 Cherry Street in 1898 and at 817 Division Street in the 1899 Directory. The 1900 Census and 1901 City Directory shows Charles Cornog and family still at  817 Division Street. The 1902 City Directory lists the family at 808 South 8th Street, where they remained through 1908. The 1909 City Directory shows the Cornog family at 811 South 8th Street, then back across the street to 810 South 8th Street by the spring of 1910. 

Charles Cornog passed away on June 13, 1910 at his home at  810 South 8th Street. Albert Cornog began his career with the Camden Police 

Department on June 17, 1910. In January of 1918 he was assigned to traffic duty, and was stationed for years at Haddon Avenue and Kaighn Avenue. Albert Cornog was promoted to Sergeant on February 2, 1929, to Lieutenant on October 10, 1941, and to Captain on March 23, 1943. 

Albert Cornog stayed at the house at 810 South 8th Street into the 1930s. He was still single as late as April of 1930, but had wed by 1940. The Directory of 1940 shows that Albert Cornog had moved to 1014 Morton Street, where he lived with his wife Anna. 

Albert L. Cornog retired on November 15, 1949 at the rank of Captain. He had been commanding the Third Police District, encompassing Cramer Hill and East Camden. Neither he or his wife are listed in telephone directories from that point onward.
