MarriageMargaret TomlinView this family
about 1927 (Age 47 years)
Note: Margaret, a young widow (1920) with very young children found Harry an attractive spousal candidate. His two younger children were of similar age to her children, so they were accepted by Margaret and raised within the household. Major, being much older, continued to live with his birth mother, Mildred and then went to Wabash University and then into the US Navy.
