These are census records I was able to find of my great-grandmother’s, Caroline Marie Pralle, family.

These are the next two census records I was able to find of Caroline Marie Pralle’s Family in New York. The 1910 Census is unreadable but ancestry.com had the family listed there, so I counted it as a source. This would be the first census to list my great-grandmother.

William H Pralle, age 40, living in the 25th ward of Brooklyn, Kings, New York

Minnie L Pralle,  38 years old, living in the 25th ward of Brooklyn, Kings, New York

Minnie L Pralle, 13 years old, living in the 25th ward of Brooklyn, Kings, New York

Caroline M Pralle 9 Years old living in 25th Ward of Brooklyn, Kings, New York

Catherine N Fromme, 78 years old, living in 25th Ward of Brooklyn, Kings, New York

Catherine N Fromme would appear to be Wilhemina Fromme as she is also listed as the mother-in-law in the census.

The 1920 Census is of much better quality. It seems that family has moved to Hollis Ave. in Queens, New York. The most interesting fact was that William Pralle owned a butchershop and employed his daughter, Minnie Pralle, as a cashier. I will definitely try to investigate the buisness.

William Pralle, age 49, Naturalized Citizen (question mark on year of naturilization), Immigrated to the US in the year 1888, Owner of A Butchershop, living on Hollis Ave in the 4th Ward of Queens, New York City, New York

Mimie Pralle, age 47, Immigrate to the US in the year 1893 No Occupation, Living on Hollis Ave in the 4th Ward of Queens, New York City, New York.

Minnie Pralle, 23 years old, Working as a cashier for her father’s butchershop, Living on Hollis Ave in 4th Ward of Queens, New York City, New York.

Caroline Pralle, 19 years old living on Hollis Ave in 4th Ward of Queens, New York City, New York. Not working and not in School.

The only major discrepancy is that the immigration years are different (1888 and 1893) from that of the 1900 Census (1887 and 1889).
