THOMEN & Lightbown Families
My Aunt Florence Lightbown was married for a short time to James T. "Travis" Thomen. Travis was born 16 Jan 1904, lived in DC, and wed Florence on 9 Dec 1925 in Chevy Chase MD. They were divorced in Jan 1931, and did not have any children. He was a draftsman back then. Travis seems to have married a woman named Grace later in 1931. Travis probably died 27 Aug 1989.
The Thomen family lived at 1118 Staples NE before 1925; also there were Bertha M., Harold O., May B. and Orange O. Thomen.
The Soc. Sec. Death index says that James T. Thomen's last residence was Silver Spring MD 20910, in 1989.
One of these Thomens (the brother of Travis?) was supposedly a congressman...? The Thomen family later lived in the District and near Blair High School in Silver Spring MD.
Does this sound like your family?
