I'm looking for more info on the descendants of William Henry Harrison Crowson, b. abt 1841 in Shelby Co., AL, son of John Bedney Crowson (1817-1873) & Eliza Ann Hutchinson.
Bill Crowson has given me some info, that Wm. Henry Harrison Crowson married Callie Malissa Tubbs, and had:
Eli Almon Crowson (b. 1875) m. Annie Haseltine Nelson Mary J. Crowson (b. 1877) m. John A. Thornton George C. Crowson (1880-1940) m. Dollie Wren.
It is mostly the line of George C. Crowson that I'm working on.
I found George & Dollie in 1920 and 1930 Houston Co., Texas, and I also found a death record for a Dollie Crowson, that I'm wondering is the same one:
Dollie Crowson, b. jan 9, 1880, died Feb 15, 1970 in Houston, Harris Co., Texas
I have that George & Mollie had:
Maybell Crowson b. abt 1899 who m. Howard Thomas Douglas (& divorced), and had Oren Douglas 1916
Reba Crowson (1902)
Herman Crowson (1913)
I found a Herman Crowson on Texas Deaths (but not on SSDI) and was wondering if this was the same one?
I believe that I have found Howard Thomas Douglas on the 1930 census in Houston, Harris Co., with his next wife:
Howard T. Douglass head m w 33 m 31 (age at first marriage) tx tx tx builder/tank co Loie Douglass wife f w 18 m 16 (age at first marr)tx tx tx Nona C. Douglass dau f w 3/12 s tx tx tx Dan Stanley cousin m w 29 s tx tx tx builder/tank co
and that I've found Maybell also in Houston, Harris Co., in 1930.The last name is hard to read, but ancestry.com has transcribed it thus:
May B. McClain head f w 31 div tx tx tx saleslady/dry goods Oren B. Douglas son m w 13 s tx tx tx
They also had 2 lodgers in their household.
So, what I'd really like, is if someone knows if the little bits and pieces that i've put together, have come up with the right picture!Any further info on Maybelle Crowson McClain, and her son, Oren, would be greatly appreciated!
I've actually got a distant connection to both Maybelle Crowson (going back to her ggg grandmother, Huldah Lindsey, who was married to Richard Thomas Crowson)
to Howard Thomas Douglas (his gg uncle, Robert Benjamin Goodrum married Eliza Jane Craddock, who was most likely the great granddaughter of Edmund Craddock & Ann Elmore, who were my gggg grandparents.
