The Fifteenth United States Census records for Middletown Township in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, for 1930. The census divides the population into categories of name, age, sex, race, marital status, occupants and relation to head of house, whether the home is owned or rented, value of home or rent, whether home is a farm residence, and whether the home has a radio. It also records college attendance, literacy, birthplace and birthplace of parents, citizenship status, language spoken before coming to United States, year of immigration, occupation or business, class of worker, whether they worked the previous day, military status, and the war or expedition participated in.

A notable resident listed in this record is Charles Henry Craig (1896-1982). Craig was born on October 6, 1896, in Dixmont, Maine. He was drafted in 1917, and his service began on March 31, 1917. He served with Battery C 4 Field Artillery in the United States Army, but never went overseas. He was stationed in Justice Precinct 8, Bexar, Texas, in 1920, and was honorably discharged on April 6, 1920, as part of demobilization. After his discharge, Craig moved to Delaware, Pennsylvania, and married Edith Hazel Chambers on December 30, 1922, with whom he had four children: Charles (1923), Elizabeth Sarah (1925), Mary Louise (1927), and Frances (1936). In 1940, Craig became a principal superintendent of Williamson School in Media, Pennsylvania, while maintaining his job as a tree surgeon. Craig registered for the “Old Man’s Draft” for World War II on April 27, 1942. Charles and Edith moved to Florida by 1954. Craig passed away on March 9, 1982 in Hollywood, Florida, and Edith followed in March 1989. They are buried together in the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
