Sunday Dinner At The Railroad Restaurant

about 1925

Another 24 hour operation in Delmar managed by Mrs M J Knotts.  Not much is know about the restaurant.

Martha Jewell Knotts (1853-1937) was the daughter of Thomas H Jewell and Sarah Jewell of Denton, Maryland.  She would marry latter in life (1902) Thomas "Tom" C Knotts.  He was a car inspector for the Railroad.  They lived on East Street.  She ran a boarding house and in 1915 her husband died and shortly afterwards she begin to manage restaurants and run her boarding house.

Based on the newspaper clipping of her death she was well known to railroad people.
