Milton Henry Lindale Thawley1

M, #6507, b. 27 February 1882, d. 29 October 1970
     Milton Henry Lindale Thawley was born on 27 February 1882 at Denton, Caroline Co., MD.1 He was the son of John Wesley Thawley and Adelaide Eugenia Cochrane.1 Milton Henry Lindale Thawley married Pheobe Emily Maddox on 14 February 1922 at Denver, CO.1 Milton Henry Lindale Thawley died on 29 October 1970 at Holly Oak, New Castle Co., DE, at age 88.1
     Milton reported that he was, for about 6 years, a member of the Barnum Bailey Circus, doing advance work for the traveling troupe. This was before WWI. He reported that he often traveled with the circus on trains. During one of these trips, some other members of the troupe found out that he was ticklish. They then set about tickling him, and he jumped from the train rather than endure it longer. (all of above told to me as a child - Robin Anderson)

Milton had bright red hair, was tall (about 6'1') and wore glasses. He was first married to (unknown) and had 3 children: Willard (Wid), Ella Jean, and Ann Morgan Thawley. This marriage ended in divorce. (information from daughter Emily Thawley Anderson)

During WWI, Milton worked in France in the mail service. I do not know if he was in the Army at the time or if he went as part of the USPS. After the war, he worked for the USPS in Washington D. C. where he married Phoebe and where their first child, Emily, was born. (told to me by Milton)

At later times in his life, Milton worked as a Maytag (?) repairman/salesman in Carbondale, PA, and as a plumber in Princess Anne, MD. (information from daughters Ellen and Emily).

Milton died from cancer of the stomach (metasteses in liver and lungs).1
