1890-1891 shows James McCann at 438 South 2nd
Street. By the time
the 1894-1895 Directory was compiled he had moved to 229 Taylor
Avenue and was working as a machinist. Directories from 1895
through 1897 indicate that James McCann has moved to 12 South 2nd
Street. Still working for the Pennsylvania Railroad, James McCann
had moved to 431 Emerald Street in 1898. He moved again in 1899,
to 533 South 2nd
1900 Census shows James McCann and his wife, the former Isabella
McKibbon, and children Annie, 19; Isabella, 17; Ellen, 15; and
James, 9 at 533 South 2nd
Street. Father-in-law Thomas McKibbon
also resided there as well. James and Isabella McCann and young
James were living in the 500 block of Kaighn Avenue when the 1905
New Jersey Census was enumerated.
McCann's brother, John "Cap" McCann, was a notorious
character in Camden, and was in and out of jail on a number of
occasions. The two brother fought in May of 1903, and John died
shortly afterwards. It was determined that he died of a stroke,
and James McCann was not prosecuted.
McCann does not appear in the 1906 City Directory or the 1910
Census. He appears to have either passed away or left the area.
Thomas McKibbon, however was still living in Camden in 1910.
