1890's-early1900's "MEMORANDA": A PERSONAL BOOK OF NAMES(#1)

A friend of mine’s great grandfather (my friend is about 68) kept a notebook of insurance sales and rentals, among other things. The book probably dates from the late 1890’s-early 1900’s, based on two dates (1899 & 1902) appearing in the information towards the end of the book.
Last names and addresses are listed, covering New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The following information is based on handwritten data found in the notebook, “Memoranda”. (The spelling of names is as written). I believe the addresses are both residential and commercial.

My thanks to Dr. J.Z. for so generously sharing his family’s treasure trove.

Below is a partial list of names & addresses, with more to come soon.
