Treasure Chest Thursday: "Stone House," Perrineville ad, FLPBA 25th anniversary publication

More than two years ago I wrote about my great grandfather, Isidore Morris and great grandmother, Sarah Myers Morris, and their Perrineville, New Jersey home documented in the 1940 census. They had left New York City in 1933 and purchased a house with some acreage (their "farm") in Perrineville, New Jersey.[1] What I had not realized until I saw this advertisement in the First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association's twenty-fifth anniversary publication was that they had developed a country summer "resort" called "Stone House" and rented rooms and a bungalow.

Isidore and Sarah sold the property in 1945 and moved back to the City.[2] Isidore's health had deteriorated, undoubtedly due to his years working as a glazier. He passed away in 1947.[3]
