Lilian Bennet-Thompson
« on: Tuesday 28 September 21 09:55 BST (UK) »
A person of this name is living at 151 West 12th Street, New York, according to another person's WW1 Draft Registration card. Is it possible to to confirm a person of that name is living there in the 1910s. I ask as there appear to be no other records, except a 1924 land assessment in Orange, New York, to prove she exists. I have her born Missouri with the maiden name Orlando in 1883  and dying New York in 1942 - but I have no idea where I found these details. The birth date appears on various sites, but never a source.


Thanks
John

Thanks. The death seems to be this one in New York Death index:
Name:    Lillian Thompson
Age:    57
Birth Date:    abt 1885
Death Date:    10 Apr 1942
Death Place:    Warwick, New York, USA
Certificate Number:    24034

She is on 1940 census, an author, divorced but widowed on actual form, living Warwick. And found her on 1930 census as Lilian B Thompson, widowed, author, born c1884, living Warwick. And born New York. And Lillian B Thompson on 1910 census living with apparent mother, Josephine Bennet.

Got her. She was born Lillian Inez Bennet in New York, May 1883. Married Herbert Thompson in 1902, deceased by 1910 apparently though 1910 census says she is divorced. Her father was Frank Orlando Bennet. The variant spelling of her first name and the hyphenation of her maiden/married names threw me until that death notice opened the door. Thank you Sandra.

Apologies to anyone who wasted time looking for her.

John
