Re: Alice Correll Roszell
Alice Correll Roszell was the wife of my first cousin twice removed Charles W. Roszell.
I have some notes about him:
In 1901, at the time of his grandfather’s death, and in 1907, he was living at 1213 Fourth Street, Peoria.[His grandfather was Henry Nicholas Frederick, an early harness and saddle dealer in Peoria.H. N. Frederick is my great-great-grandfather.]
In 1920, the household of Charles W. Roszell was enumerated at 1218 North Adams Street, in a house shared with Joseph B. Correll (i.e., his father-in-law).The Roszell household consisted of Charles W. Roszell, head, aged 28, born in Illinois, father born in Virginia, mother born in Illinois, salesman, stock company; and Alice L. Roszell, wife, aged 25, born in Illinois, both parents born in Illinois.
Listing in Peoria City Directory, 1925: “Roszell Chas W (Alice L) bkpr F Meyer & Bros Co h 2828 N Mad av.”
He is listed in Polk’s Peoria City Directory for 1941 as “Chas W Roszell (Alice L), ins broker, h 2828 N Madison av.”
About Alice C. Roszell, I know only that the SSDI states that Alice Roszell, born 29 May 1894, was paid her last benefit at Peoria, Illinois, and died January 1978.
When a young child, I heard a lot about the "Amos and Andy" connection.
