Re: William Bryan Foley and Lucille Crowell - Died in Oregon

In Reply to: William Bryan Foley and Lucille Crowell - Died in Oregon by William Foley of 3392

Here's the update on my Father (William Bryan Foley, Jr) and his parents (William Bryan Foley) and Lucille Alice Crowell.

William Bryan Foley, Jr was born on 5 Oct 1942 (not 1941 as previously thought). He died on 21 August 2010 in San Diego County, CA. The county was unable to identify next of kin so his body was cremated and ashes spread off the coast of Pt Loma. He was a in a nursing home (El Dorado Care Center) prior to his last hosptial admittance but I have been unable to determine why he was in a nursing home. He may have remarried after divorcing from my mother in the late 1960s but I haven't found a link to that information or any subsequent children.

William Bryan Foley was born 14 Nov 1988 in Norcatur, Decatur County, KS. He died on 7 Sep 1957 in his home in Eugene, OR from a coronary thrombosis. At that time, he was married to Lucille Alice Crowell. My mom says that he had been married once before and had a daughter from that marriage but I have been unable to find a link to the former marriage. His father was John Andrew Foley and his mother was Ella M Matthews.

Lucille Alice Crowell was born 7 May 1913 and died on 7 Sep 1973. Her mother, Martha Pearl Driver, originally married oliver Crowell. However, she married Merlon Shook in on 24 Sep 1917. I found subsequent census information with Lucille listed but under the Shook family name. The Shook name is also written on her son's SSN application.

Hope all of this helps someone else. On the Foley side, I have pieced information together back to James Foley/Martha Hagarty but so far have hit a dead end at that point.
