Re: Condran's of Lebanon/Dauphin County, PA
I'm currently researching my great great grandfather Daniel J. Condran (1862 - 23 July 1941). According to the marriage applications of several Condran's out of Lebanon, with whom I am related, Daniel is listed as their father. However, the 1900 PA Federal Census for Lebanon does not include his name with the family, but states that Annie Condran was currently married. I can't seem to find him anywhere that year.
I have a copy of his obituary which links him to my family as well as brother Cyrus of Annville, so I know this is the same Daniel Condran.
The following is what I have so far:
Mr. Daniel J. Condran was born [date / month currently unknown] 1862, in Annville, Lebanon County, PA. to Mr. Henry & Elizabeth Condran. According to the several marriage applications Daniel was married to Anna “Annie” White (some documents use the surname of "Whitehead") about 1898. The 1900 Federal Census for Pennsylvania, Lebanon County, Lebanon City Ward 3, District #126, p. 29, lines 20-30, where Annie Condran’s household appears, Daniel is not listed, although she is listed as married for 2 years.
His name appears in several city directories in both Harrisburg & Lebanon, Pa between 1896 where he is listed as a “puddler” living on 7 Lochiel, Row 1, and 1899 & 1901 104 N. 15th St., Lebanon with “Mrs. Anna” in the 1899 listing then as “Mrs. Christiana” in the 1901 listing. Children in 1899 listed as Lillie M. & Eva S.” then including “James” in the 1901 list. In his obituary in the Lebanon Daily News paper July 27, 1941. He is said to have been a Harrisburg Police Officer.
Daniel married a woman named Mary J. (maiden name unknown) at some point, and can be found in the 1920 Federal Census for Pennsylvania, Dauphin County, Harrisburg Ward 9, District 94, p. 27 of 29, lines 6-7. It appears that they lived in an apartment on 1631 Park Street, Harrisburg. He was 57, she was 52.
This also includes one of the first references I saw of his father being born in Ireland. And again they are found in the 1930 Pennsylvania Federal Census for Dauphin County, Harrisburg, District 33 p. 7 of 30, lines 29-30 living at 1208½ North 10th Street, Harrisburg.
Any additional information would be very welcomed.
