45 Crescent Ave

The 1910 US Census showed that the Murphy family lived at 45 Crescent Ave.

Ten Murphy’s occupied the house with John Henry the head (father) age 45.Mother Ellen J.,age 39. The rest of the family: Marion Elizabeth(16); Edward C. (14); Paul W. (12);George B. (10); John H jr. (8); Helen A. (6); Margaret L. (4); and Frank (12).

The list here includes father George B. And our uncles and aunts.

Must have been the liveliest Dorchester house in 1910. I’ll be sending more posts with descriptions of life in 1910 era. Lots of history was made in the decade of 1910 and decades to come.
