Re: Thrower
In Response To: Thrower ()


I found Alex and Jannie in the 1930 census but I could not find Alex in any earlier census records.

1930 Cenus for Sumter County
Note that the census taker spelled his name Throw

Throw, Alexander 40/AGE AT FIRST MARRIAGE-23/ born SC
Throw, Janie 35/AGE AG FIRST MARRIAGE-18/ Born sc
Throw, Albert Son age 14
Throw, Annie L. Dau age 11
Throw, William son age 7
Throw, Miley son age 6
Throw, James son age 5

I was shocked to not be able to find Alex in either the 1900, 1910 or the 1920 cenus records. That was astonishing to me. Anyways I believe this is him in this WWI record and this Social security record>>>
