Frank P. Newcomb

Frank P. Newcomb (b. Jul 1870, BMN #1360) was the son of  William T. Newcomb (b. 28 Mar 1826, BMN #556) and Judith E. Straughan (b. 24 Mar 1834).  B.M. Newcomb stated that Frank married Eudora Tripp in 1871 and had a son, Norman, born in 1873. This is obviously not correct. The census lists a Norman Newcomb, the nephew of Frank's brother Joseph. This Norman was born around 1904. If Frank was married to Eudora, who died in 1892, Norman could not have been their son. Frank married Fanny around 1898, and they had two daughters. Fanny died in 1905, so Norman may have been her son. In 1910 Frank was living with the two girls and with Ida Rawlins, whom he would later marry. Norman was living with Frank's brother, and was still living with him in 1920. So far, I have no information to show whose son Norman really was.
