A search of the Cincinnati City Directories and the 1910 U.S. Census shows the young family boarding with the Zins family at 2416 Eastern Ave. They were living there when their first-born, Edith, was born. Although birth certificates were not required until 1911 in Ohio, her birth was recorded with the city and later transcribed to an index card. A link to these records is here.

The young family didn't stay at this address for long. Margaret Ann's notes referred to the family living on Dandridge. Dandridge is a street in the Pendleton Area of downtown Cincinnati -- not part of the East End. I couldn't understand why they would have moved there, but then I remembered that Norine's brother, Albert, and sister, Addie, were living in that area. A search of the Cincinnati City Directories showed the family living at 514 Dandridge Street and Albert and Addie Cronin living just around the corner at 1306 Pendleton. Both buildings have since been torn down. "Fred's" occupation was listed as "carpenter." Albert Cronin was a bartender.
