Henry Miller in the Census Records

Thank Kreg from Miller Walks for the following: New York City census records from Henry Miller's youth. Kreg recently posted these as a Comment in an earlier post about Miller in Washington during WWI. With such a great resource of vital statistics, I thought it worthy as a subject of its own post.

New York City - 1900
Henry is eight-years old. He lives with his father, mother, maternal grandfather, maternal aunt and younger sister at 662 Driggs Avenue. His grandfather, Valentin Nieting, was born in Germany in July 1836. He came to America is 1863. At 63 years old, he still works as a Journeyman Tailor (although has only worked half the year). He is the owner of the house (fully paid). His single daughter (Henry's aunt) Anna is 25, born in NYC in July 1874.

Henry's father, Henry Miller (Sr.), is 33 years old. Born in NYC (says the census) in October 1866, he currently works as a Merchant Tailor. He's been married to his wife Louise for ten years. Louise, 30, was born in June 1869 in NYC. Both of her parents, as with Henry Sr's, were born in Germany. Henry Miller (Jr) was born in New York in December 1891, as is listed as being "at school." His four-year old sister Loretta, born in July 1895, is not yet in school.

New York City - 1910
The Miller family now lives at 1063 Decatur Street in the Burrough of Brooklyn. Everyone is ten years older, except for grandpa Nieting, who has died. Henry Sr is now the Head and Owner of the household. He's still making money as a Merchant Tailor, paying off his mortgage. His wife Louise M continues on as a housewife. Our young Henry V Miller, now 18, is working as a clerk at a cement company [Atlas Cement]. Loretta is now 14.

New York City - 1920

Link to the original census - 1920

Henry V Miller is now a 28-year old married man; the head of his own home at 507 8th Avenue in Brooklyn. He's working as a Librarian at "Bw. Ind. Rs." His wife's name is Beatrice. The census taker notes in January 1920 that the couple has a 3-month old daughter named Barbara. Beatrice's 59-year old mother, Catherine Wickens, also lives with them, and works as an assistant matron at a hospital. To help cover rent, the Millers have taken in a 28-year old Japanese boarder named Tory Takekawa; the exports manager has been in America for five years.

Also of interest are two census records relating to June Smith Mansfield from 1910 and 1920.
