Newark People

Old Newark


Roth, Richard

My father, Richard N. Roth (1922-2011) was raised in the Weeqhahic Section and lived in Newark until 1953, when he relocated to Hillside.

My mother’s father operated a trucking business in Newark which was established around 1930 on Morris Ave and later relocated to the corner of 12th St. and 13th Ave. My Dad assumed ownership in 1959 when my grandfather passed away. The firm remained in Newark until well after the riots. My grandfather was also a co-owner of the E & A Bus Company, which operated the #32 bus (South Orange Independent Line) that ran up South Orange Avenue.

My other Grandfather, Jacob Roth, also a Newark resident for much of his life, ran a butcher shop.
