The 1910 Federal Census for Danville, Va. (ED#15, page 4A) records A. P. Glidewell and family living at 647 Colquohoun Street. A. P. is a listed as a house carpenter, married 30 years with 10 children, all still living. Edmond is a gas fitter for the city while most of the other children (15 and older) work in a cigar or cigerette factory: A. P.

Goodman (28 - NC) and his wife Emma (23 - (A.P.'s daughter) and their children Evelyn May (1 11/12 - VA) and A. P.'s daughter, Florence (26 - NC). [No idea why A. P. and E. T.'s wives are not listed and Florence is listed as a Goodman and single.] The occupations are hard to read but it looks as though E. T. is a Plumber and W. C. is a machinist for the rail road.
