Solved Cases

2006-06-1: We need to know the date and place of death for Life member (#56), Alice Dreger of Kenner, LA. We received her returned Harlow Happenings in February 2006 marked: Deceased.

Solution: Brian McDerment found an obituary on the US GenWeb web site which contains obituaries for East Barton Rouge, LA. The one for Alice Dreger stated that she died on 18 Dec 2002 and was survived by her husband; Ralph Mason Dreger PhD. Brian also found the obit for Ralph stating that he died on 7 May 2004.

2006-06-2: We need some help to find the date and place of death for Life member (#12), Edward H. Bartlett. Edward's last place of residence was New Durham, NH. We received his returned Harlow Happenings in January 2006 marked: Deceased.

Solution: Burt Stackhouse found a listing in the Social Security Death Index that states that Edward H. Bartlett, b. 21 Apr 1936; d. 29 Oct 2003 in Sanbornville, Carroll, NH.

2006-06-3: Looking for more information on Ralph and Ellen Kane Harlow from Illinois. Ralph was born about 1884 and Ellen about 1890. They had a daughter, Margaret Florence Harlow born in 1907 in New York. She married Harold Schuyler.

Solution: I was able to trace Ralph's father, William Harlow to Jefferson County in Illinois. All of the Harlows in the early to mid 1800's from this county can be traced back to Tennessee and then to Overton Harlow who was born in Virginia in 1782. The Harlows in the above line are definitely from the Virginia Harlow line of descent.

2006-06-5: We need some help to find a connection to Sgt. William Harlow for Oliver Edson Harlow who passed away in Plymouth, MA on 26 Feb 2006.

Solution: Vickie Storlie found a listing in the Social Security Death Index that states that Oliver Edson Harlow was b. 16 Jan 1913. She then used the Federal Census and other sources to trace Oliver's line from 1930 back to 1850. This research allowed Vickie to connect Oliver to Ivory Harlow #2612 on page 429 of our book, Harlow Family.
