Harry Dickinson and children 1920

Updated: Jun 18, 2022

Harry married Annie Robinson in Camden, New Jersey, in 1890. Their family was living on Gross Street in Pittsburgh in 1900. By 1910, the family was living at 178 South 7th Street in Newark, with six children in the home, between the ages of 10 months and 15 years old. Sadly, Annie, their mother, died from Puerperal-Eclampsia on May 1, 1913. Photos of the cemetery and burial register are found here. Daughter, Emma, assumed the motherly role, caring for the younger children. She kept a diary in 1919, giving us a glimpse into their lives at the time. You can read it here, free. Copies are also available at a minimal price.

Shown here is Harry with his children, a few years after the death of their mother, Annie. Back row: Emma Dickinson, Rose Dickinson, Elizabeth Dickinson and Ruth Dickinson. Front row: William Henry Dickinson, Harry Dickinson, and John Dickinson.

Also shown is the family's entry on the 1920 Census in Newark, Essex, New Jersey. Harry was 56, Emma was 26, Rose was 18, John was 15, and Ruth was 8. Their son, William, was off at college at Bethel Institute.
