While looking through our obituary book for the late 19-teens, I came across this name that seemed to ring a bell. This is the father of the twins whose obituary I posted yesterday. Less than two years later, the family suffered another loss.
From the 23 August Fremont Times Indicator comes these two brief articles:
Mayne Towne died last night in the City hospital in Fremont
Mayne Town died Tuesday morning at the City hospital following an operation for appendicitis. He was 54 years of age. The funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the M. E. church.
And yes, they each spelled the last name differently.
