Another Brick Wall Crumbles--Albert Frederick

HAPPY DANCE TIME AGAIN. Down goes another Frederick Brick Wall. This time it is Albert L. Frederick also known as Burt L. Frederick. Yep, I couldn't contain myself...find one Frederick at FamilySearch...had to add another to the search engine.

Albert has been illusive. My mother had no knowledge Albert. Her mother, Albert's sister, simply told my Mom that her brother was dead and had been for some time. I knew he was alive when my great grandmother, Lucinda Orr Frederick died in 1909. In the obituary he was listed as Burt L. Frederick, which lead me to search under that name. I found him on the 1910 Chicago Illinois census.

I have not been able to locate a census report for him for 1900 or 1920. Years back a fellow family researcher sent me a copy of a family reunion booklet that was probably printed in the early 1900's. Albert is listed with a son, Raymond; however, no wife is listed. Raymond Frederick has brought me no leads...there are too many of them to narrow down the search.

The 1910 census did tell me that Alfred (Burt L.) was married twice. His new wife Louise M. (maiden name unknown) and little daughter, Sarah and Burt are living at 5303Dearborn Street in Chicago, Illinois.

Where do I go from here....CHICAGO!!! I have to have those two obituaries.
