Susan,
How ironic, just tonight I was entering an obit for the brother of Rosetta and Della Thwaits into my file. I found the obituary of John E. Thwaits, son of Allen J. Thwaits in some paperwork of my Mother-in-law, who passed away November 4, 2002. However, it didn't tell me much more about Allen J. Thwaits and his wife, but maybe it will give you some clues.
John E. Thwaits was born October 31, 1889 in Mercer County,Oh and died May 24, 1975 in Coldwater Community Hospital, Coldwater,Ohio. His obit listed an adopted son,Tom Thwaits of Fort Recovery, step daughter, Mrs. Richard Combs and a Sister Ida Werling, Fort Recovery among the survivors. It lists 4 living children as Bessie (VanKirk),Roy, Frances (Kyle) and Dorothy (Mrs Lester Boner). He is buried in Springhill Cemetery in Fort Recovery,Ohio.
At least, we have added another sibling to the group.
According to a researcher in Ohio who is from this family a couple of generations removed, Allen J. and his wife are buried in the Holsapple Cemetery in Darke County. His ancestor is Allen Basil Thwaits and he stated that we descend from 4 brothers who came from England. From his research, he lists Allen J.'s father to be Benjamin Thwaits, b. 1826 PA, d. 1877 in Darke County,Oh who was married to Rosannah Taylor. Benjamin was the son of Jeremiah Thwaits, b. 1796 in England, and wife was Catherine ______?
I have not gotten around to prove this connection yet, so do not know the validity. Makes sense though.
Tell me about your Rosetta? I have her listed as being born in 1873. Is that correct? I have no other information about her.
Am glad to hear of another researcher on this family. Maybe we can find everyone sooner this way.
Virginia
