In 1930 my maternal grandfather, Fred Maloney, his wife, Mary, and their five children were living at 54 Greig Street in Rochester. The Federal Census for that year has some interesting data, including the "age at first marriage" (for my grandfather - 20, for his wife - 44) and year of immigration (for Mary Hanley Maloney it lists 1880 - probably incorrect). My grandfather's occupation was railroad engineer (Erie RR). The five children: (1) my mother, Mary, 24 years old, bookkeeper at a meat market (Fahy's Market on Front Street); (2) my Uncle Joe, 23 years old, no occupation listed but he was probably studying for the priesthood at St. Bernard's Seminary on Lake Ave.; (3) my Aunt Helen, age 21 years old, clerical worker in a clothing establishment - later she would join the convent as Sister Helen Joseph; (4) my Uncle Leo, 20 years old, occupation was originally listed as "chauffeur" which was crossed off and difficult to see what replaced it but it was something in a grocery; (5) my Aunt Kay, age 19 years old, a stenographer. This is the last available census record for the Maloneys until the 1940 census is available next spring.
