Interested in some Tower family info
Posted by: John Howard (ID *****8851) Date: November 27, 2008 at 10:40:39

I grew up in a house here in Orange County ( Modjeska Canyon ) that Dr. Tower built in 1919 / 1920.
I lived there from 1969 to 1989
I work as a volunteer for the County of Orange Parks department, as the County owns the house now. I volunteer some time to keep it up as best as I can.

I am looking for information on the following individual. I am particularly interested in place of burial and any place to find additional information on him.

James Franklin Tower
Born: 3-7-1868 ( Chicago, Illinois )
Died: 1927
Occupation: Doctor
1920 census listed him living at 114 Sapphire, Redondo Beach

Wife: Laura E.

Additional info I have is as follows:

1910 Census ( Mohawk Street in Pasadena )
1920 Census ( 114 Sapphire Street, Redondo Beach )
1930 Census ( South Catalina in Redondo Beach ).....only Laura showed on census form, as children probably moved...James died 1927.

Their children:
Beryl A. Tower ( Redondo Beach H.S. )
Eva Hansen Tower ( Redondo Beach H.S. 1916 ) she is listed in class directory.

Grandchild: Franklin J. Tower ( "Bob" )
B: 2-14-22
D: 2-3-05
Reno, NV

Great grandchild:
Randy Tower
Lives in Nevada area. I have been in email contact with him. Does not seem interested in providing any additional info from what I have.

Sorry this email is all scattered. I am putting it together at the last minute. If you might have any additional Tower info, please let me know.
