The 1880 Federal Census, Pennsylvania, Dauphin Co., Harrisburg, District 92, page 328A records Levi Hagen living at 937 Pennsylvania Ave. in Harrisburg, Pa. He is a boarder listing his occupation as blacksmith.
The Lancaster City Directory for 1877 lists Levi as a Coachsmith and in 1886: as a Blacksmith.
A "Levi Hagen" also shows up in the Harrisburg City Directory in 1889 at 515 South 2nd Street and in 1890 at 181 Paxton. These appear to be the same Levi Hagen.
The 1890 Philadelphia City Directory lists Levi C. (occupation: smith) and William G. (occupation: driver) Hagen living at 1411 North 22nd Street. This Levi C. Hagen is most probably the brother of William. See notes for his mother, Annie R. Hagen, for Camden City Directory listings.
The 1900 Federal Census for New Jersey, Camden, Ward 1, District 33, page 39B records Charles L. (March 1858 - PA/PA/Maryland) and Annie M. (July 1862 - PA/PA/Germany) Hagen (indexed as Chas Hagner) with daughters Nellie S. (Dec 1883 - PA) and Mary E. (Sept 1887 - PA) Hagen living at 616 North 2nd Street. Charles and Annie indicate they have been married for 19 years have had 4 children of which 2 are still living.
The 1910 Federal Census for New Jersey, Camden, Ward 1, District 5, page 42A records Charles L. (52 - PA/PA/Maryland) and Annie M. (46 - PA/PA/Germany) Hagen with daughters Nellie S. (26-PA) and Mary E. (22-PA) Hagen living at 616 North 2nd Street. Charles and Annie indicate they have been married for 29 years have had 4 children of which 2 are still living. Charles is employed as a machinist for the locomotive industry and his father was born in Pennsylvania while his mother in Maryland.
The 1920 Federal Census for New Jersey, Camden, Ward 1, District 7, page 48A records Anna M. (57) Hagen with daughters Nellie S. (35) and Mary E. (31) Hagen living at 616 North 2nd Street. Unfortunately, Anna is listed as a widow. Anna has no occupation while Nellie is a school teacher and Mary is a dressmaker.
A telephone call on July 18, 2006 to Harleigh Cemetery, 1640 Haddon Ave., Camden, NJ 08103 (856-963-0122) determined the burials in the Haddon Section, Lot 167 for the following family members: Charles L. Hagen (July 9, 1912), Annie M. Hagen (July 5, 1941), Mary Elizabeth Hagen (Nov. 13, 1974), Annie R. Hagen (April 25, 1896), and Annie A. [Agnus] Hagen (July 23, 1925). There was a description of a large monument at the grave site but no record of Levi. [The dates given are dates for the burials] Michele and Gloria at Harleigh were helpful.
The death certificate for Charles L. Hagan (sic) does not record his date of birth but does give his age as 54. His date of death is July 5, 1912 in Camden County, Gloucester Township, The Village of Blackwood at what looks to be the Camden County Insane Hospital. He was employed at the Baldwin Locomotive Works as a Machinist. His parents are listed as Levi Hagen, born in the USA and Anna Conrad born in the USA. The informant was J. A. Starkey of the County Hospital for the Insane. [James A. Starkey was superintendent at the Camden County Asylum, see 1910 Census. It is not known whether or not Charles was an inmate or hired help at the hospital.]
Lakeland Medical Facilities Had Humble Start in 1872
The Camden County Alms House Infirmary opened in 1872 in what was then known as Blackwoodtown. From this humble beginning there have grown at Lakeland: the Camden County General Hospital, Hospital for Chest Diseases, Mental Hospital, Camden County Alms House and the Shelter for Children.
In 1926 a receiving building and surgical building, two stories in height, were built as additions to the infirmary. The additions still stand. The original building does not.
In 1933 the Camden County General Hospital was built on the site of the original infirmary.
July 30, 2007 email from Audrey DeLaney:
Just wanted to catch you up on what information I got at the Harleigh Cemetery.
Nice gentleman that is a genealogist really did well by us. He copied all the information he could find and even made maps of the cemetery and the mausoleum and marked the plots out for us and then took us to the different locations.
I have included the information from the index cards and files that they gave us. You may already have it, I'm sure.

Know that you probably have these but wanted to make sure.
Haven't done much genealogy lately and need to get back to it. If you want the information on Bertram's family I will be glad to send it on.
Thanks for all your help.
Hope all is well up there.
