1605 Girard Avenue, 29th Ward

1890-07-22; Paper: Philadelphia Inquirer
Samuel P. Darlington, father of Joseph G. Darlinton, of Darlington & Runk, died early yesterday at the residence of his son-in-law, A. W. Da Costa, 1605 Girard avenue. Death was due to old age. Mr. Darlington was 88 years old. He was born in Chester county, and after a busy life in his native county and at Pittsburgh, returned to Philadelphia and entered the hardware firm of Truitt Brother & Co. When they retired in 1867 he also retired from active life. The loss of his wife ten years ago affected Mr. Darlington deeply."
