Wade, I don't know that I saw and replied to this posting of Sept. 30, 2006. I found it online as I was reworking a "cold file" on DOROTHY QUINCY LORING, but don't have it in my file. Thank you so much for all the information you developed on this possible match.
Yes, this seems a good match. I have just posted on GenForum MANNIX # 145 a follow-up query on the MANNIX angle you developed. It lists my source for the information on PHILIP QUINCY LORING, "son of PRENTICE and HELEN C. (McALISTER) LORING, both natives of Maine. PRENTICE LORING, born in Yarmouth, Maine in 1834, was one of the foremost citizens of Portland".
I still have not been able to find a 1910 Maine census for this PHILIP LORING family, searching on both Heritage Quest and Ancestry.com. I did find them on Heritage Quest for 1920, but not on Ancestry.com for 1920. Our APHGA office in Syracuse NY has discovered many Pomeroy's in Maine, not previously known. So, there may be many missing US Census records for Maine for this period.
1920 US Census 7-WD Portland, Cumberland, Maine, found on Heritage Quest: LORING, PHILIP I (not Q) age 50, President. Insurance. Fire. Maine.Maine.Maine. LORING, MAUD P age 47. Maine.Maine.Maine. (EVA MAUD was known as MAUD in most documents, but as EVA M. POMEROY in 1880 US Census, Portland, Maine.) LORING, DOROTHY Q age 23. Single. Maine.Maine.Maine.
1930 US Census Portland, Maine that shows PHILIP Q LORING living most likely in a hotel on CONGRESS Street,age 61. Married (not WID). Insurance agent. Insurance Office. (not President. Insurance as in 1920 US Census.) 1930 US Census Portland, Maine shows DANIEL N MANNIX with DOROTHY and MARGARET living also on CONGRESS Street, as was PHILIP.
