    Link to Google MapsCensus - William S Carr (45) is shown living at 423 Broadway, Paterson, NY with his wife, Eliza A (45) and children: Arthur C (18), Florence M (17), William A (12), Elizabeth D (10), Clara A (9), Edith T (7), Helen D (5) and Louis D (11 months). William's home was down the street from a coal tipple at 443/445 Broadway - which would have made coal dust omnipresent in the home & neighborhood! His employment was shown as a Foreman at a locomotive shop while his son Arthur was a clerk for the Erie Railroad. All the other…. William very likely worked at one of the several locomotive works in the vicinity of Spruce & Market streets in Paterson: Rogers Locomotive and Machine Works, Grant Locomotive Works (out of business by 1885), or Danforth & Cook Locomotive Works (by 1901 part of American Locomotive Company). The locomotive facilities were collocated, less than 1.4-miles from William's home at 423 Broadway - a 28-minute walk. See: http://patersongreatfalls.org/rogers.html - 1900 - 423 Broadway, Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, USA Link to Google Earth
    Link to Google MapsCensus - William's family increased by one since the 1900 Census with Henry Parke born in August 1900. Henry's middle name is without the "e" in later documents. Four children are employed outside the house: Arthur is an engineer, Florence is a teacher, William in the same illegible profession (freemason?) as his father, and Elizabeth is a nurse in a hospital. William continued to work as a foreman at a locomotive works. As noted on the 1900 Census, the works was probably in the area of Spruce & Market streets. Grant works was no longer in business. - 1910 - Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, USA Link to Google Earth
    Link to Google MapsCensus - William's (65) employment was as an engineer, but the nature of that work is not legible on the record. It is possible he was either a design engineer at the locomotive works where he had previously been a foreman, or was an engineer for a railroad. - 1920 - Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey, USA Link to Google Earth
