1910 Census Johann Martin Brueggeman

To continue our review of the 1910 Census, I looked at the youngest Brueggemann sibling,  Martin.  He was 40 at the time of the census and they were living in Memphis at 204 Washington Street.  This is the address of Trinity Lutheran Church.  I wonder if the parsonage was on the property.
His children were all still at home, Victor (14), Otis (12) and Arno (7).

It was a working class neighborhood as all the residents on this census form were renters.  It wasn't a German neighborhood.  The residents had all kinds of occupations:  Hair dresser, book keeper, traveling salesman, optician, teacher, doctor's assistant.  Many of the women worked outside the home.
