Biographical detailsEdit

  • The 1910 Census lists the Calef Family at 13 Friend Street Place, and John's Death Certificate lists his address as 39 Friend Street Place today called Dexter Street. After looking at the 1924 Lynn, Massachusetts map, it would be apparent that these two homes on Friend Street Place were demolished for the construction of the E.J. Harrington Elementary School.
  • The census also lists his occupation was paperhanger.
