Planning to spend a couple days in my fathers home town, Philly, next month. I know he grew up in Germantown, he called it "the foot of Ashmead Street" among other addresses before being orphaned at 16. My grandfather (and my father, and a couple great GFs) name was Claude C. Lathrop, from NY state originally. Can't find a source for city directories online - anybody out there able to help?
