I'm looking for the parents of Roy Northrup, born around 1904 (supposedly in L.A. County CA.). All we have is his oral history -- no documents whatsoever.
His father was a Henry Northrup. His mother either Linie Whitacher (from oral tradition) or Linil Hull (this appeared on his Social Security application card of 1936 -- to the sruprise of all of us!). An only child, Roy was orphaned very young while living in either Texas or Oklahoma. He was taken in by the William Leech family.
He married Anna Cech (immigrant from Bohemia) in Omaha, Nebraska in the early 1920s. My father, Robert Raymond Northrup, was born in Omaha on May 13, 1925.
Roy died in July, 1972 in Toledo, Lucas Country, Ohio. My grandmother Anna died a year later in June, 1973 in the same area. My father recently died on June 13, 2005 in Midland, Midland County, Michigan.
