Bob, In this pursuit seven years is a short window...
Are you a son or grandson of Mary Ann Howes?I thought she had one son named Andrew?This may or may not be accurate.
Regarding Vivian and Harold: a) are you aware of when they married?Where? b) were obituaries/memorials written at the time of their deaths? c) where were they buried?
As a side note Harold once lived in Farmington Twp, Oakland County, Michigan - circa 1937/8.His home was about 1 1/2 miles directly north of my current home in Farmington Hills.
Harold's mother was divorced from his father when he was very young.Consequently, we have little knowledge of what her fate was - or what Harold did from 1910 thru 1937.Does anyone in your branch of the family know anything?
