- 1920 Federal Census Data: age 55, living with wife Maggie R., a.53, 2 daughters Elizabeth H., a.16, and Margaret R., a. 14, and his uncle Thomas B. Maynard, a. 78, in Liberty, Frederick Co., Md - on Main Street. Just 3 lots away lived Harry L. Smith, a. 38, with his wife Grace and children Milton, George, Mary and John -- could they be relatives of Maggie R. Smith Simpson?
In 1930, Thomas and his wife Maggie lived on Walnut Street in Libertytown, Frederick Co., Maryland in a home (with a radio) valued at $2,000. Their two daughters H. Elizabeth and Margaret R., both teachers, lived with them. Next door lived Raymond Cashour and his wife Maude -- Thomas’ half-sister. Rachel Simpson, Thomas’ step-mother, lived with the Cashours.
QUESTION: Why do I think he and his wife died in Hagerstown? His family had been there for generations and the 1930 census places them living in Liberty???? [1, 3]
