Glad to hear we have a match. I have only just started dealing with the Towles myself. I took over the work my father did and only just found some papers he had on the Towles.
I have a copy of an old handwritten record that lists:

Mistake rectified. William Raner was George William Towles, Sr. stepfather. his own Fathers name being (nothing further here)"
That's all it says. I added the stuff in parens. I can send you a copy if you want. Just send me your address. Unfortunately, I don't know who wrote it or when. Judging by the handwriting, it's at least early 1900's.
From what my father compiled, probably from his mother and aunts:
Sarah Ann Towles m. Henry Mundy Ayres
Georgeanna m. Alexander J. Crane
Harold m. Edith
Theodore m. Hazel/Mary
Albert m. Mim
William m. Elsa
Clara May m. Elmer Jacobus
Elmer m. Peg McBride
Grace m. Harry Goss
William Harvey m. Margaret Maguire (1st), Alma Rath (2nd)
Margaret Gurney (1st)
William Harvey Jr. (2nd) m. Suzanne Campbell
William Harvey III m. Jennifer Halliday
Robert Bruce m. Teresa Orrohood (1st) Patricia Beljan (2nd)
Savanna Marie (2nd)

John Laseby Towles died at one month
Willfreda W. Towles m. Lewis B. Harrison

That's everything I have. Unfortunately, I can't vouch for the authenticity of most of it, except for my immediate family. I'd be happy to hear what you have.
