The name Pedagog is a Greek translation of the Padgug name. This is the earliest official record that we have of Harry Padgug at this time. We know that he arrived in the U.S. in 1900 with his mother, Ester Padgug, his two brothers, George and Nathan, and his sister, Fannie. It is still unknown exactly when he changed his name. This is a copy of the 1930 Census record that includes Harry and Lena Pedagog and their three children. It looks like the residence address is 99 Broad Street in Newark City, New Jersey.
It appears that Harry and Lena are the homeowners at this location, but it also shows him as a farmer. The value of the residence is at $100,000, so we're not sure if this was a tenement house, a farm or single residence. The other families listed at that address are shown as renters. It is still confusing information and we'll try to obtain more information from living relatives.
The other link is a blank copy of the 1930 Census form (courtesy of Ancestry.com). This will enable you to see what the headings are in the original form which is difficult to read. The last link is to the Tenement Museum in New York City. It has a virtual tour of the renovated building at 97 Orchard Street.
