Biography

Timeline

Birth

There is a birthdate discrepancy of three years (1887 and 1890) between the stated birth years on the two marriage license applications. The parents, however, are the same. It may be that on her first marriage application she added three years to her age if she was 16 at the time.

I looked for her father Thomas Jefferson Comer in the 1900 Census and did not find him in Indiana.

Marriages

Maud Ola Comer applied for a license to marry William Cerenious Thompson 16 July 1907 in Miami County, Indiana. Her birthdate on the marriage record is recorded as 12 July 1887 near Monticello, White, Indiana, daughter of Thomas Jefferson Comer and Nellie Edna King. Her occupation was dressmaker.[1][2]

Maude Thompson on her second marriage license application gave her birthdate as 12 July 1890 and her birthplace as Peru, Indiana. Her residence was then Michigan City. Her parents were Thomas Comer and Nellie King. She had been married once before and she had been divorced 6 Nov 1921. Howard Lee had been born 12 Mar 1882 in Three Oaks, Michigan. He was a railroader, residing then in Michigan City. He was the son of James Lee of Union Pier, Michigan and Kit Perram of Lakeside, Michigan, presently residing in Three Oaks. Maude Thompson and Howard Lee were married on 8 August 1922 in New Carlisle, Indiana.[3][4]
