I've been researching my ancestor William Warren (WW) Boyington (the Chicago Water Tower architect) and discovered Gregory H. "Pappy" Boyington in the mix.He is descended from WW's son Levi Carter (aka Levi R.) Boyington. I don't have his wife's name.
I talked to Pappy's son, Greg, about Levi's relationship with WW and he had heard that it was strained.It may be that Levi had his son, Charles Barker Boyington "out of wedlock" at 18 and as a result his father kicked him out of the family mansion.Census records back this theory up.I'm still researching Charles Barker's mother's name.
Charles Barker was 15 years older than Grace Gregory when they married in 1912 in Idaho.Pappy was born one year later and they divorced two years after that. Grace remarried Ellsworth Hallenbeck and Pappy was raised with that name (Census backs this up.) If anyone knows Charles Barker Boyington's mother's name, please let me know!This is the missing link.
