Derby Family Genealogy Forum
I just ran across the Derby family today while researching descendants of Luella Bradley. Her half-brother, Elmer N. Erwen, married Ruth Elizabeth Derby 2 Sep 1930 and had a child, Harold Phillip Erwen, born 24 Apr 1933. They apparently divorced around 1932-33. Ruth was much too young to be married, but the marriage license indicates her widowed mother, Letha V. Derby, signed permission. If you have any more information on Harold P. Erwin, I'd appreciate having it.
I found a marriage for Harold P. Irwin and Gaetana Costanza in 1955 in Cook Co., IL but don't know if this is my guy for sure. Apparently Harold died in August 1985 in Charleston, SC; my searching found that his mother, Ruth, had moved to South Carolina with her second husband.
I doubt that you are interested in pursuing the ancestry of Ruth's son, Harold Phillip Erwen, but if you are I'll be glad to share what I know. (joanbusiness-genealogy @ yahoo.com)
