Harold W. Newcomb (b. 1888)

Harold W. Newcomb was born 12 Sep 1888 and died 11 Apr 1965. He marred Erma Radunzel (b.  Dec 1891).  B.M. Newcomb stated that Harold was the son of James Newcomb (BMN #1435) and Lucy Carter. However, in the 1900 census, he is living with Lucy and is clearly listed as her stepson, not her son. Both the 1900 and the 1910 censuses list Lucy as the mother of two children (George and Percy), not three. The 1900 census lists Harold's birthdate as 1886, not 1888 (as indicated by BMN).  In 1910, George was living with Lucy and Harold was living with James. (James and Lucy were divorced. James remarried, to Alberta Kintz, in 1911).
