While the 1930 census indicates Daniel was "first married" at age 60, it appears that Daniel was previously married: The 1910 Federal Census for Camden Ward 4, New Jersey, District 21 records Daniel H. Park (51 - NJ/NJ/NJ) with his wife Augustina A. Park (52 - VA/VA/VA) and children Thomas T. (21 - PA) [Thomas Thurman Park by WWII Draft Registration Card], Richard P. A. (20 - NJ) [Richard Paul Abbott Park by WWI Draft Registration Card], Elizabeth M. (19 - NJ), and Andrew O. (16 - NJ) [Andrew Oliffe Park by WWII Draft Registration Card] living at 413 Federal Street. Daniel is an agent for a sewing machine company.
The 1940 Federal Census for Pitman, Gloucester Co., New Jersey, District 8-45, page 652B, dated April 22, 1940 records the widower Daniel H. Park (82 - NJ) living with his son Thomas T. Park (52 - PA) and his wife Phoebe R. Park (48 - NJ) and son, Thomas Park (19 - NJ) at 132 Columbia Avenue. Thomas has completed 6 years of schooling and is employed as a Police Office earning $1,600 working 52 weeks durting the last year. He own his home valued at $3,000.
Interesting to find this family in the 1900 census record. Daniel is recorded as Henry and other family names are of interest as well: The 1900 Federal Census for Camden Ward 4, New Jersey, District 44, page 207A records Henry E. Park (Oct 1858 - NJ/NJ/NJ) with his wife of 14 years, Gustiena (March 1858 - VA/VA/VA) and children Thomas (Aug 1888 - PA), Abbott (Nov 1889 - NJ), Merzra (March 1891 - NJ), Oliffe (May 1893 - NJ), and Perry G. (July 1897 - NJ) living at 413 Federal Street. Henry is a Sewing Machine Agent.
Daniel married Eliza M. Hamel, daughter of Jacob Hamel and Lizzie (Elizabeth) M. Fritzinger, circa 1919 in Philadelphia, PA. (Eliza M. Hamel was born on 14 Mar 1846 in Pennsylvania, died on 9 Mar 1933 in Philadalphia, PA and was buried on 13 Mar 1933 in Greenwood Knights of Pythias Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA.) The cause of her death was Arterial Sclerosis.
