7.  Participant in the CULP Y-chromosome DNA Surname Project at FamilyTreeDNA, who tells me with regard to the location in the 1910 census:
The census taker appears to have been walking around the block

South on South Prince St
East on West Vine St
North on South Queen 
and West on West King to Starting Point.

(the center of Lancaster is the intersection of King and Queen street)

So I believe it is South Prince St
