Residence October 13, 1926 Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States East 100th Street 4a
Event Note

Ellen was evidently in Cleveland for a while, when her son John married Ethel May Clayton. Ethel May's immigration information said she was going to her "aunt" Mrs James Fitzgerald's home on E 100th Street. The record is difficult to read, and I couldn't make out the house number for Ellen, but John was living at 1270 East 100th when he married.
