    • Edith's address is not recorded properly on the 1950 census record -- no street name is listed and the house number is written as 525. Her enumeration district covers the blocks surrounded by Richmond Ave, the southeast quadrant of Colonial Circle, Lafayette Ave, Ashland Ave, and Breckenridge St back to Richmond. Based on other available records, she was actually living at 540 Ashland Ave at the time.
