Winifred Lidy Troy (married Sheldon Bowman)
Searching for information on Winifred Lidy Troy, b. 16 Jul 1902 (probably in Huntingdon Co., PA), d. 04 April 1982, Halethorpe, Baltimore Co., MD.She married Sheldon Elbia Bowman of Mt. Union, Huntingdon Co., PA, and they had a daughter named Kathleen Glenora Bowman.I do not have a marriage date/place for Winifred and Sheldon, nor do I have a birthdate/place for their daughter.It is actually the daughter, Kathleen Glenora Bowman that I am researching back from, but I have quite a bit of information on her father's branch of the family, who hail from Huntingdon Co. since at least as early as 1808.But Kathleen and her mother and the maternal branch of the family -- the Troy family --is a deep mystery to me.I know the Troys were also from Huntingdon Co. at least around 1900, but no idea how far back they go there.
Winifred Lidy Troy's date of birth was given by her grand-daughter (one of Kathleen's children)so is probably nearly accurate, and her date of death is from the Social Security Index.Winifred and Sheldon appear on the 1920 census as living in Shirley Twp, Mount Union District, Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania.Sheldon is a laborer at the brickyard there.That census is the only place I've been able to find Winifred on, and she was already married to Sheldon at that time.I know that at some point between the 1920 census and Sheldon's death in 1946, they moved to Halethorpe, Baltimore Co., MD.But I can't find them on any document after 1920 until their death listings on the Social Security Index.And I can find NO information on Kathleen Glenora Bowman except that she existed and married Millard Scheitlin sometime in the first half of the 1940's, either in Huntingdon Co., PA or Baltimore Co., Maryland.
So if anyone has any information or conjectures on Winifred Lidy Troy, and her daughter Kathleen Glenora Bowman, I would appreciate hearing from you.
