" In my researches I found that my great grandparents, Samuel and Christena Hannah, lived at 12 First Street in Weehawken NJ. First Street was renamed Cooper Place about 1940, so it was the same address as on your website. According to census records, they were living there in January 1920 and in April 1930. The census records showed Samuel as the owner of the house, and Charles and Maude Lyon as tenants.

Actually, Samuel and Christena were not compatible and, at least in the later years, only Christena lived in this house together with a niece. Christena died in February 1940 at age 79, and the house must have been sold then. I was seven years old when she died.

I remember the house well as a young boy. My parents lived in Pleasantville, New York, and we would drive down to Manhattan and cross on the Weehawken ferry to visit my great grandmother. She lived on the second floor, and the tenants were on the first floor.

I haven't seen the house since 1940.

1930 Census: Weehawken, Hudson, New Jersey, 12 First Street, Samuel Hannah, 70, own $9,000 radio, conductor pensioned, Christina Hannah, 69 Lizzie Bett, 48, secretary office.

At same address, John W Lyons, head rent age 41, born NY, conductor railroad, Maude F wife age 37, born NY, Roma F daughter age 14, born NJ

In the 1910 census Samuel and Hannah were living in Haverstraw New York.

While I was photographing, a neighbor lady struck up a conversation with me. She is restoring her house at #3 Cooper Place, and told me the houses on the street were part of a development begun in the 1890's. She claims the houses have changed little since they were built, although apparently the exterior walls were originally covered with asphalt sheet siding in place of the present horizontal siding.
