Annie W. Jones with Barclay

Annie Wells was born on 2 December 1878 at Pemberton in Burlington County, New Jersey to Moses K. and Florence Wells.  She married Arthur Wells Jones (1875-1936) on 3 July 1900 at Pemberton.  The couple had one child, Barclay Gibbs Jones, born 30 May 1902.  Annie died in 1962 and is buried in the Odd Fellows cemetery in Burlington County.

In the 1880 census, Annie is listed with her parents in Pemberton.  In 1900, Annie was living in Camden, N.J. as a boarder in the Stacy Gibbs household.  She and her sister, Mattie Horner, are working as “sewing operators.” Arthur is also living in the household and is listed as a cousin to Stacy Gibbs.  By 1920, Annie and Arthur had settled into their home on north 40th St. in Camden.  After Arthur’s death, Annie moved back to Pemberton and appears in the 1940 Census at 20 Hough St., the home of Florence Wells.

I don’t know much more about Annie.  Where was she employed as a sewing operator?
