James Dowis1

b. 6 March 1879, d. 1919
Birth*6 March 1879James Dowis was born on 6 March 1879.1
Marriage*He married, as her first husband, Lyndall R. Carner, daughter of James William Carner and Rosa May Huston.1
Draft Registration*12 September 1918James Dowis completed his World War I Draft Registration Card on 12 September 1918 in Glendale, Los Angeles County, California. His home address was reported as Saugus, Los Angeles County, California, his wife's name was Lyndall Dowis, and he was employed as a laborer in Saugus by J. M. Goodlin, who was his wife's stepfather. James was described as stout in physical build, tall in height, with light brown hair and blue eyes.1
Death*1919He may have died around 1919 about age 40. He completed his World War I Draft registration in September 1918 and his wife, Lyndall, was enumerated on the 1920 census as a widow with three very young children. We are always suspicious of "widows" on census reports because, often, divorced women did not like to admit to that distinction. In Lyndall's case, however, although we have not been able to find a record of James's death, neither have we been able to find a record of him alive after his draft registration.1,2

Frederick K. Dress1

ChartsDescendants of Robert Heaton of Yorkshire, The Immigrant
Birth*Frederick K. Dress was born in Germany.2
Marriage*14 February 1871He may have married, as her second husband, Matilda (Heaton) Wheatley, daughter of John Heaton and Rocceana Kensler, on 14 February 1871 in St. Louis, Missouri. His surname is unclear to us. It appears to read, and was transcribed, as "Dress" in their marriage record, and the surname of the two young boys enumerated as grandsons of Matilda (Heaton) Wheatley's parents in 1880 was spelled "Deer". We have attached them here as possible sons of Matilda and Frederick, although we have no proof to support either the parents of the boys, Henry and Osie Deer, or that the Mathilda Wheatley in the marriage was actually our Matilda (Heaton) Wheatley.1,2
