Elsie Fels: 1930

This could be our Mrs. Fels. The Fels' came from Virginia originally. Perhaps she was married to the namesake son or the grandson of the the Fels' family, Joseph. The daughter's name of Barbara? There were Barbara's in the Fels family before. Maybe this namesake decided to seek another means of livelihood by coming to New York? Here he manages an oil business, a gas station? btw that(319 E. 125th Street) address is currently a gas station on First Avenue and 125th Street. Maybe in later life Mrs. Fels was a widow and worked as a substitute teacher.
