Subject: [Irish in Chicago] What's My Ancestor's Occupation?
Date: Thu, 10 Apr 2003 19:48:15 -0400
The 1880 census lists my Chicago ancestor as a "friscoer".
His brothers were "shirt cutters".
In later years, in city directory, he's listed as a plasterer...so
is a "friscoer" just a bad spelling of a "frescoer", a guy that
paints on wet plaster?
Any help appreciated.
