George Cable


 

GEORGE CABLE was born George Frederick Kappel in New Jersey around 1866, the son of Frederick and Lizzie Kappel. The family was known in city directories and newspapers into the 1890s as "Cable"/

The 1878-1879 and 1878-1879 Camden City Directories shows the Cable family at 530 North Front Street. George Cable had gone to work by 1879 as a spinner in one of Camden's textile mills. The 1880 Census shows the Cable family, which included younger sisters Lizzie and Amelia, were living at 538 French's Court, a short street that was in the 400 block of Sycamore Street. The family moved back to 530 North Front Street by the middle of 1882.

George Cable is listed in the 1884-1885 and 1885 City Directories at 538 North Front Street. The 1887-1888 Directory shows him living at 5 England Place. George Cable was worked as an extra man with the Engine Company 2 of the Camden Fire Department in 1887. When the 1888-1889 Camden City Directory was compiled, George Cable had been appointed to the Camden Police Department. He was then living at 523 North Front Street. The 1890-1891 and 1891-1892 City Directories indicate that George Cable was living at 108 Birch Street. The 1892-1893 Directory shows George Cable had moved to 609 North Front Street,

In 1895 George Frederick Kappel appears to have stopped using the "Cable" spelling once and for all, although the newspapers continued to use the "Cable" spelling on occasion. For further information about him, his family, and career, click here.
