Information from Find A Grave contributor Ross Morton: Chester Isaiah Ridge was born the date that you show in Elizabeth Union Co NJ-the same as his two sisters. His parents lived at 628 Henry Street in Elizabeth in 1910 and moved back to Philadelphia around 1915-1919. As you show in his obituary, he died at Community General Osteopathic Hospital in Harrisburg, Dauphin, Pennsylvania rather than Camp Hill Cumberland Pa which was his residence
