15023Re: Katherine Eva Twombley Parsons.
- Nov 24, 2011In my grandfathers obit her name is listed as Katherine Eva, the weird thing is that the marriage certificate has it listed as Kate L. On the familysearch.org has a copy of the marriage certificate and Thomas is listed as her father, they lived in Cape Neddick, ME. There isn't a mother listed. The first source you found was interesting as my grandfather had an Aunt Hattie, but the family was never talked about. The problem I am finding is that this area has a strong French background, so the last name of Twombley and all it's different variations is very common.
