but I can't find De Long Street anywhere near 13th Street.

*I just checked I can't even find De Long Street.

Meet Mr. William Petzold, his wife Eva and daughters Florence,on right, and Nellie, on left. Mr Petzold was born in New York of German immigrant parents, in February of 1866. His wife was also born in New York as were both his daughters. The younger daughter, Nellie, was born in 1897 so that would mean that the family came to California between that time and 1900 when they appear in the Census in Los Angeles. They lived at 506 E. 1st street in 1900 and then later moved to 842 Beaudry where they lived until the mid-1940's. They must have lived in the De Long house for only a very short time.
