Looking for my wife's Tower Ancestors
Posted by: Ward Kelsey (ID *****0619) Date: October 29, 2003 at 11:08:07

My Wife (Margaret Rose Tower) was born 16 Nov 1947 at Corpus Christi, TX eldest child of Rosalia Horkin b. 1 Sep 1921 at Mexia TX d. 1985 at CCTX. and William Z Tower (nee Zelos S. Tower) b. 9 Dec 1916 at Portsmouth OH. m. 2 Jan 1947 at CCTX. and d. 10 Oct 1988. We have nothing on the Horkin Family (except that her maternal grand mother was a Bradley) and very little on the Towers. Her father was the son of Zelos S. Tower Jr. b 1890 at Letonia OH m. Mary Geraldine Dunn (aka Dunne). We have info back three generations on the Dunn(e)s d.? We think that her grandfather was the son of Zelos S (Sedgarck according to the 1880 census) Tower. He is listed in the 1880 census as the 18 year old son of Anna Tower (apparently a widow age 40) and a resident of Elizabeth PA. Her one remaining uncle living in CCTX says that the S. in all three names was for Sedgwick. I hope that this rings a bell with someone.
