Subject: [GENMASSACHUSETTS] GREENAWAY / GREENWAY, 1900's
Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2011 03:51:17 -0800 (PST)
I had already suggested that Harry Edgar GREENAWAY might have been a Harold GREENAWAY. But, while looking at www.familysearch.org just now, I was reminded that the man might have been an Edgar GREENAWAY. (and the obvious alternate spelling would be GREENWAY)
I did find a family in Marblehead which might be of interest. The 1930 census has this family. The page says that William was born in England and Jennie was born in PA.
Household Gender Age
Parent William S Greenaway M 51
Parent Jennie E Greenaway F 51
Wilfred T Greenaway M 21
Albert E Greenaway M 18
Edith Greenaway F 17
Elizabeth Greenaway F 15
Florence L Greenaway F 13

Thedore Lundin M 43
If H.E. GREENAWAY had a musical band, he could have possibly had a "stage name."
Betty (near Lowell, MA)
(Someone on the VT List just mentioned the GOODNOUGH surname, and I mentioned that I went to high school with someone with the alternate: GOODENOUGH.)
P.S. The name of my grandfather's small (family) band just popped into my head:
"The Lewis Swing-Billies." He and his 2nd wife, Hazel, lived in Windsor Locks, CT, during 1940's, and it was her BEDELL children who were in the band with him. I think they performed locally in the Springfield, MA, area.
