Re: james symonds

The 1930 census pob for his mother looks like -------- Ireland I took it as Southern. Probaly the enumerator made a mistake.

Re: james symonds

Hi Vinnie,

Assuming this is the correct Lawrence Grimes, cant quite make out the address but looking further up on the census image 8th Avenue is written.

Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama

Lawrence M Grimes head age 46 occ wood worker born Ireland
Fathers pob Ireland, mothers Pob Ireland
Hattie E Grimes lodger age 28 born Georgia - farthers and mothers pob Georgia
Margaret A Grimes lodger age 6 4/12 or 6 0/12 born Albama - fathers pob Ireland - mothers pob Georgia
Annie F Grimes age 4 5/12
Hazel M Grimes age 0 7/12

For some reason Hattie and children are down as lodgers :confused:
