Per Irwin Berly, William Berly's family had a bathroom off the kitchen (which made it warm) William and Louis' family lived in Boston or East Boston.
Death certificate states he was 51 when he died in 1929 making his birth year around 1878.
William was a fur cutter and was exposed to a lot of dust, later developed asthma and died doing some work in a basement. Louis Berly was called to get him when William had this asthma attack moving some ashes in a rental property they owned, but apparently William had already died when Louis got there. Peggy and Charlotte Berly state that his wife Ida brought a plumbers plunger instead of pulmonary aide to assist William in breathing.
Sarah Berly did not speak to Louis' family for 30 years or so, but did call Irwin Berly after Wilma married Saul Cooper. She called to see if Irwin could get Saul a job with the Army Corp of Engineers, which he did.
Address in 1929 was: 141 Harrishoff St. Boston, MA
Address of death was: 95 Harrishoff St., Boston, MA
William's Jewish name was Welvel Schteisel Naturalization cert. no. 267829, Petition no. 5408
