4. William Thomas3 Coveney (William, #8) was born on 28 Nov 1880 at 130 W Canton St., Boston, Suffolk, MA, USA.20 He married Mable Augusta Jenkins (see #5), daughter of Orville Augustus Jenkins and Amanda M. Smith, in 1906 at Roxbury, Suffolk, MA. He married Ella Dorothy Sullivan, daughter of Robert F. Sullivan and Mae Ella B. Pettyman, in 1924.21 He died on 19 Feb 1969 at 31 Fisher Ave., Newton, Middlesex, MA, at age 88.
Paul says he grew up in the Winter Hill Section of Somerville, as do my records. He told me of frequent canoe trips down the Charles River as a youth.
Both he and brother Ed worked for Brown Durrell Co. on Essex Street as salesmen. After some years Mr. Walker of Walker Stetson & Co. lured him away from his competitor. After some years he became President, and I visited him there a number of times. Ed joined him there. His habit was to lunch at the same table every day at a fish resturaunt the name of which I forget. They sold Manhatten shirts, and Jockey underware, which were my Christmas presants from him. R.H. White was a customer of both firms.
I trace the continuity from Thomas, leaving the "lighterman" tronsportation from ship to shore for the "Expressman", transporting from shore to buyer, and securing for his son(s) employment at his dry goods customer, R. H. White, The next generation sold to R.h. White and other Dry Goods Companies.
I have no detail, but education must have been important, as the clerical jovs leading to bookeeping required at least business skills, and the daughters of William being sucessful teachers, and a laywer son suggest more education. W.T. gave his daughters college educations when that was not normal, sent my father to MIT.
Walker Stetson closed when the building was taken for the construction of the central artery. W.T. had accumulated over a million dollars of worth through his company, and utility investments which prospered before his death.
*. He was employed by Drygoods-Pres. His Social Security Number was 028-05-6395.
