bullet  General Notes:

His wife, Amy, told her grandson, Don, that Harry had been an amateur boxer in London and was a London Bobby at one time.

On settling in California he worked as a Carpenter in the Long Beach Ship Yards for a time. Before World War II and prior to 12 Dec 1934, they moved from Long Beach to Cypress, Orange, California and he built the house in which they lived on the northwest corner of Grace and Belmont streets.

Amy raised turkeys, chickens and vegetables on the large lots. Harry also built a nice workshop separate from the residence. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen #3852132 in Santa Ana, Orange County, California on 12 Dec 1934.

Later they added a second story residence over the Cypress garage and storage and wash room in which son, Harold and his wife and two children could live.

Harry and Amy moved back to Long Beach in about 1950 and bought the house at 715 East 9th Street and refurbished it. After his retirement he built an 18' cabin cruiser in his garage at 715 East 9th Street, Long Beach. He gave it to his son, Harold, to use as a trade-in for a used 1952 green Cadillac.

The Cypress house was razed in about 1990 to build new apartments.
