About Josephine Dustin

An 1898 California Voter Registration Record for Pleasant Jester Chipman, 46 years old, showed that he was 5'-9" tall, had a light complexion, blue eyes and light colored hair. He was working as a farmer and was born in California. He could read but couldn't write. The previous year in 1897 he had married Josephine Dustin, the daughter of Joseph Dustin and Mary Catherine Bickmore, his second wife. Josephine was born August 8, 1875, in San Bernardino, California. She may have previously been married at the age of 18 but to whom she was married then is unknown.

An earlier California Voter Registration Record for Pleasant in 1892 showed that he was 40 years old, living in San Diego, California, in the Winchester area, and was working as a farmer. He was 5'-9" tall with a light complexion blue eyes and light colored hair. He registered on October 10, 1892. Another earlier record for Pleasant from 1880 showed that he was 27 years old, living in San Bernardino and working as a farmer. An even earlier record from 1875 showed Pleasant Justice Chipman, 21, living in San Bernardino and working as a blacksmith. Listed on the same page of the voter registration record was Plasinus Erastus Chipman, 22, also born in California, and living in San Bernardino, who was working as a teamster. This was probably Pleasant's brother, and according to an 1860 census, they were both 7 years old, so they may have been twins.

In the 1910 U.S. Federal Census for San Bernardino, California, Josephine, 32, and Pleasant Chipman, 57, had been married for 13 years but had not yet given birth to any children. Pleasant was working as a house carpenter. They were both born in California. A 1920 U.S. City Directory Listing for Pleasant J. Chipman and his wife Josie showed they were living at 1054 A Street in San Bernardino, and he was working as a carpenter. Pleasant's mother, Marguerite (widow of Van L.) Chipman was living at 1202 Rialto Street, but no occupation was listed for her.

In the 1920 U.S. Federal Census for San Bernardino, California, Josephine Dustin Chipman and her husband and children were living at 1034 A Street, a home they owned free from a mortgage. They were listed in the census as follows: Pleasant J., 66, Josephine, 43, Josie, 6, Fredric, 4 years, 4 months old. None of them had an occupation listed at the time of this census. They were all born in California. A U.S. City Directory Listing for them in 1922 showed that they were living at 27 Burt Street and Pleasant was working as a carpenter.

In the 1930 census, they were listed as follows: Pleasant J., 80, Josephine, 52, Fredrick, 16, but where was Josie...she would have been 16 years old in 1930, was she already married? They were living at 27 Burt Street in San Bernardino, a home they owned valued at $1,000. Pleasant was first married at age 23 and Josie was first married at age 18. No occupations were listed for any of them once again. However, in a U.S. City Directory for 1928, they were living at 27 Burt Street and Pleasant was working as a carpenter.

A 1936 U.S. City Directory listing showed that Pleasant and Josie were living at 48 Pershing Avenue in San Bernardino and he was still working as a carpenter. His son Fredrick and his wife Frances were living at 148 Pershing Avenue, and in that same directory was a Mrs. Josie C. Chipman living at 279 Allen Street (could this have been Pleasant and Josephine's daughter?)

A 1940 U.S. Federal Census for San Bernardino shows P.J. Chipman, 86 year old, living at 148 S. Pershing Street alone, and next door was his son Fredrick, 26, and his wife, Frances, 23, and their sons Robert, 4, and Donald 2, but where was his wife Josephine living at the time? Another 1940 census record showed a Josie D. Chipman, 62, living in the home of John A. Wheeler, 76, and his 10 year old daughter, Ada L., and Josie was working as a housekeeper. She was listed as being a widow, but that was crossed out and a "D" was listed above, so perhaps she and Pleasant had divorced. Mr. Wheeler was a retired railroad man who was being supported by his son.

Pleasant and Josephine's sonFredrick was working as a clerk for the W.P.A. and for the 40 weeks he worked in 1939 at hours per week he earned $800. No occupation was listed for P.J. Chipman, but the census record showed that he had his own income. P.J. owned his own home which was valued at $300 and his son Fredrick was paying $10 per month in rent. P.J. had a 3rd grade education, Fredrick had 2 years of high school and Frances had 3 years of high school. Pleasant Justice Chipman passed away two years later at the age of 88 on March 2, 1942, in San Bernardino, California. He was born February 13, 1853.

Josephine Dustin Chipman passed away at the age of 89 years old on November 7, 1964, in San Bernardino County, California, and was buried in the Pioneer Memorial Cemetery in San Bernardino, Block 2-8-8-space 3 next to her husband Pleasant..
