Ben and Leona were united in marriage on May 20, 1928. They had three children: Constance, Gary and Benadene (my mother).
Ben and Leona were my Grandpa and Grandma.
1930 Census lists Grandpa and Grandma living at 1335 Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, Ca. By 1932 they had moved to 336 Fort Washington Ave, New York, New York. Their apartment there was in the Washington Heights section of New York and their apartment overlooked the Hudson River. The apartment building still exists today. By 1934 or 1935 they were living in Michigan and by 1935 or 1936 they had moved to Miami, Florida. By 1937 they were again living in California at 331 W. Marigold St., Altadena, Ca.
Grandpa's beauty shop in Florida was at 114 E. Flagler St., Miami, Florida and his shop in California was at 54 S. Oakland Ave., Pasadena, Ca.
Grandpa was a hairdresser and after working as a hairdresser in New York, Michigan and Florida, he eventually made his way back out to California. Grandpa styled the hair of such young starlets as Betty Davis, Bebe Daniels, Laura La Plante, Mary Pickford, Betty Bronson, Mae Murray, Mary Brian and Joan Crawford. He was known as "Mr. Bernie" to his clients.
Unfortunately, Grandpa died at a very young age of peritonitis due to a ruptured appendix. He had started experiencing stomach pains while on a vacation camping trip to the mountains with his young family. By the time that he got to a hospital, his appendix had ruptured.
His family misses him very much and we look forward to seeing him again (some of us for the first time) in Paradise!!!
