I’m not 100% certain whether her name is GerDrude or is actually GerTrude. Both names were traditional German female names and it’s difficult to tell for sure what it was based on the two documents I have with her name.

We can tell from this document that the family has moved uptown from their Pitt St. address seen on earlier documents.
