President William McKinley Jr.1

b. 29 January 1843, d. 14 September 1901
Birth*29 January 1843William McKinley Jr. was born on 29 January 1843 in Niles, Trumbull County, Ohio.2
Relationship Note*William McKinley Jr. and John Rose were reported by the Heaton source to have been first cousins, appearing unlikely to this researcher given the almost 80 year difference in their ages. The Douglas County source reported that William Heaton's "grandfather, John Rose, and President McKinley's grandmother were cousins." If a cousin connection existed between the two, it may be discovered with additional research. McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, from 1897 to his assassination in 1901, and also the last Civil War Veteran to be elected to the presidency.1,3,2
Death*14 September 1901He was assassinated on 06 September 1901, six months into his second term, and died on 14 September 1901 at age 58.2

Census US 1910*8 April 1910Anna E. and Herbert W. Bloomfield were enumerated on the 1910 census taken on 8 April 1910 at 2646 Thompson Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Herbert was 56 years of age and owned and operated his own butcher shop, and Anna was 40 years of age. They had been married for 22 years, owned their house free of mortgage, and Anna had given birth to seven children, all of whom were living and enumerated with their parents in 1910. Edith A. was 20 years old and worked as a school teacher for the city; Bessie S. was 19 years old and worked as a bookkeeper for a towel mill; Herbert W. Jr. was 17 years old; Gladys M. was 14; Alice S. was 8; Joseph E. was 5; and Henry C. was 3 years old. Herbert Jr., Gladys, Alice and Joseph had all attended school within the census year. Also residing with the Bloomfield family in 1910 was a boarder, Wesley McLaughlin, who was 33 years of age, born in Pennsylvania, and a blacksmith. We suspect he was a relative of Anna's. Additionally, Anna Williams, age 16 and born in Germany, lived with the family and worked as a servant.1

Anna's occupation was recorded as traveling salesman, which we feel certain was meant to have been written by the census taker on the next line for the couple's son Herbert Jr. who was 27 years of age and was enumerated in his parent's household. Their married daughter, Gladys Farmer, also resided with her parents in 1920. She was 24 years of age and had given birth to a stillborn son in Tullytown the previous month. We have found no records for her husband, Clayton S. Farmer, following their marriage. The three youngest of the Bloomfield's children were also enumerated with them, and all had attended school within the census year. Allice was 18 years old; Edward was 14; and Chester was 13. Additionally, a farm laborer, William Shock, age 60, was enumerated as a boarder in the Bloomfield household in 1920.4

Her son Joseph E. was 25 years of age, and Henry C. was 22 years old. Both worked as farmers with their mother. Anna's daughter, Gladys Farmer, also resided in her mother's household in 1930.

Farmer, who was 44 years of age and also a widow, lived with her mother in 1940. Gladys had also completed four years of high school and her occupation was home housework.
