    3. I think it's great that you even know his office was on Walnut Street. I am guessing that he wouldn't have been able to afford rent in a new part of town when he started his practice in 1908 or so. It would have probably been in the 3600-4800 block.   Here are a couple of sites you might find interesting. Who knows, you might find your great-grandparents' names in one of the old city directories.   Phila. City Directory 1856/7/8, 1861, 1866:  http://www.philageohistory.org/citydir/   1890:  http://www.olddirectorysearch.com/Philadelphia__Pennsylvania_1890/   Bryn Mawr College's Philly history info (has online books, etc.): http://www.brynmawr.edu/iconog/frdr.html   Library Company of Philadelphia: http://www.brynmawr.edu/iconog/colls/lcpcolls.htm   Cyndi's List city directories: http://www.cyndislist.com/citydir.htm   Also, you can go to familysearch.org. At the top of the page, at the bottom of the blue heading, just right of the "Home" tab, under "Search Records" drop-down menu, click on "Record Search pilot". A new page will pop up. About halfway down the page on the left, there's a magnifying glass icon next to "Browse our record collections". Click on that; then choose "Canada, USA, and Mexico (103)" from the drop-down menu and click on the "Browse Collections" button directly to the right. If you go down the list, in alphabetical order, there's "Pennsylvania, Philadelphia City Death Certificates, 1803-1915" and "Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Marriage Indexes, 1885-1951". You might find some of your family records there, if they lived in Philadelphia for any length of time.   Happy hunting!   Rhonda   --- On Tue, 12/22/09, Emmert6@aol.com <Emmert6@aol.com> wrote: From: Emmert6@aol.com <Emmert6@aol.com> Subject: Re: [PA-MEMORIES] question about Habel Academy in Philadelphia To: pa-memories@rootsweb.com Date: Tuesday, December 22, 2009, 8:32 AM Hello Rhonda,    I can't thank you enough for all the information and effort  you put in on my request!

    2. Rhonda Graves
    3. Hi, Pauline. I lived in Philadelphia in the 1950s and '60s as a child, and had never heard of it. My grandfather worked in research at Jefferson Medical College from around 1959 until 1972 so that's why I tried to find something. You might want to try another search engine; I only used Google and Bing. Bing came up with nothing.   I found a testimonial from Dr. J.M. Habel, Habel Academy, YMCA Building, 15th and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, in the book, The study and practice of French in school: for advanced classes. Part Third. It's on page 340 at the bottom of the page. Here is the link: http://books.google.com/books?id=eSFKAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA340&lpg=PA340&dq=Philadelphia+%22habel+academy%22&source=bl&ots=Muo2TJMwLN&sig=_9HQC1Dwg-VbGHgeD53KYVlQoT8&hl=en&ei=UFswS4SWJcfYnAet17DqCA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CAoQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=Philadelphia%20%22habel%20academy%22&f=false   The end of the testimonial is overstamped with "Library of the University of California."    A also found a couple of references to a Dr. J.M. Habel in the Southern Medical Journal: August 1929, Vol. 22, issue 8, p. 782 and August 1933, Vol. 26, issue 8, pp. 751-752, 18, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, but I don't have any idea if there's any connection.   I checked out the address on Google maps (http://maps.google.com/maps), but apparently the YMCA Building that was there in your grandfather's time has been torn down. The Union League building was built in 1865, and extended out to 15th Street in 1908. That's the only old building on that corner.   Rhonda Graves Fort Worth, TX --- On Sun, 12/20/09, emmert6@aol.com <emmert6@aol.com> wrote: From: emmert6@aol.com <emmert6@aol.com> Subject: [PA-MEMORIES] question about Habel Academy in Philadelphia To: PA-MEMORIES@rootsweb.com Date: Sunday, December 20, 2009, 7:31 PM Hello,   I have been reading some papers left to me by my grandfather and I  see that he graduated from the Habel Academy in 1904.

    1. [PA~MEMS] Early marriages
    2. Carter
    3. I thought some might be interested in this article that I found. After rereading it I wondered if that might have been why my grandparents went to Olean NY to be married. Beverly Carter bcarter2@wi.rr.com Editorial from the Centre County PA newspaper, "The Centre Democrat" Thursday, June 25, 1885. LICENSED MATRIMONY "One of the vexed questions of Pennsylvania social economy has been the laxity of her marriage and divorce laws. A man and woman could marry themselves and they were about as easily divorced. Marriages were hasty and repentance not as leisurely as one might suppose...This laxity in our marriage and divorce laws was having a relaxing effect on the moral of the people...The new marriage law is one step in the direction of reform in the social economic question of marriage and divorce." "No person can get married without a license from the Clerk of the Orphans' Court; no person can obtain a license unless legally qualified. Minors cannot obtain a license without the written consent of parents or guardians. No person legally qualified to perform the marriage ceremony of his church or society can do so unless the license is first produced, under penalty of one hundred dollars. There can be no sham or mock marriages, elopements will not be so easy and bigamy without perjury will be impossible. Young and innocent girls will be protected from the machination of designing villians, who, under the guise of a secret marriage, accomplished their ruin. On the whole we regard the bill as one of the best measures passed by the last Legislature and one that will be of lasting benefit to the Commonwealth. If the Governor signs it, it will go into effect October 1, 1885."
