Toni, I found your entries on the Gendex website and posted there, also. My grandfather was Rolen Frank THWING born 9 Sept. 1897 in Tuscola, MI. His father was Commodore Perry THWING born about 1865 in OH, but I am unsure of the exact date as I am just getting started and have found little about him. He married Libbie Anthony (born 9 May 1879 in MI) on 29 June 1895 in Flint, Genesee Co., MI. They divorced sometime in the 1920s or 1930s. I cannot find his death certificate in Genesee Co., so perhaps he moved to OH to be with some of his other children and died there. They had several children as follows: Rolen Frank mentioned above who married Irene Yeaster on 17 Dec. 1919 in Clio, Genesee Co., MI. Their oldest child, William Elliot, born in 1922, died at 6 days old. Their only living child, my mother, Evelyn Marie Thwing Merritt Catron, was born on 4 June 1927 and is still living. Perry (unsure of birthdate) who moved to Willoughby OH and then PA. (He was supposed to have been the chief of police there according to my mother). Milton born 8 Dec 1903. Hazel (unsure of birthdate) who married a Roy Letts or Lette and moved to Willoughby OH. Merton Lee born 6 Nov. 1905. Elwin born 4 Nov. 1907. Clara Erma born 15 April 1912. The name Commodore Perry is so unusual I wonder if they are the same person as the birth dates are close. I have dates of death and can find out about marriage dates etc. if you think that they are the same.
