Pearl Blackwell Thrower Research assistance request.

+1 vote

Other than information after she married JT Thrower, I can find no further information on Pearl Blackwell. I am pretty sure she died in California. Can someone please take a look and do a sanity check for me?

Other than her marriage information and her husband's obituary, I have no information for her.

Thank you. I have that census, but the information I found said she was born in 1917. Now, I cannot find THAT source. My eyes must be buggy from all the fine print lately. For now, I've put in the data from that census.

I cannot find her death information, either. Though I'm fairly certain she has passed away (or she is over 100 years old). I know that she was living in California (as were her children). Hopefully, something will show up.
But... I just noticed her marriage certificate lists her birth as 1922, so the 1930 census is probably correct. Thank you!

Pearl & JT were my husband's grandparents. They had 3 children - Carolyn, Ron & Daniel (my husband's father is Daniel). They raised their children in Buena Park, CA but moved to Yucca Valley, CA after they retired. Pearl was born in 1921. She passed away last Sept. at the age of 97. Hope this helps you!


It is an immense help! Thank you. Would you like to be added to the trusted list since you are a close family relative of theirs?
Lisa, also, is that your photo on the newspaper site? Is it ok if I use it on her profile?
Lisa- last couple of questions. What did JT stand for? and where they buried?
