Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 182: 1920 U.S. Census Record for the Henry Carringer Household in San Diego, California

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1920 United States Census record for my Carringer great-grandparents and their family in San Diego, San Diego County, California: 

The entry for the Henry A,. Carringer household:

The extracted information for the household, residing at 2105 30th Street in San Diego, San Diego County, California, taken 8 January 1920, is:

*  Henry A. Carringer -- head, owns home with a mortgage, male, white, age 66, married, able to read and write, born in Pennsylvania, parents born in Pennsylvania/Pennsylvania, a cabinet-maker, works in a furniture store, a worker
*  Della A. Carringer -- wife, female, white, age 57, married, able to read and write, born in Wisconsin, parents born in New York/New York
*  Abbie A. Smith -- mother-in-law, female, white, age 75, widow, able to read and write, born in New York, father born in England, mother born in New York
*  Mary S. Griffith -- a lodger, female, white, age 45, single, able to read and write, born Michigan, father born Delaware, mother born New York, a music teacher, piano, works on own account.

The source citation for this census image is:

1920 United States Federal Census, San Diego County, California, Population Schedule, San Diego city; ED 285, sheet 5B, dwelling #142, family #157, Henry A. Carringer household; digital image, ( : accessed 20 October 2011); citing National Archives Microfilm Publication T625, Roll 131.

I don't see any errors in this enumeration.  The relationships are correct, ages are correct for the enumeration date, the birthplaces and parents birthplaces are correct, and the occupation information for Henry is consistent with what I know from other resources.  I don't know much about the lodger, Mary Griffith.  She may have been renting the upstairs apartment.
