Lived at 923 Vendever Ave., Wilmington, Del. when B. Viola was married.
Married his daughter B. Viola to Wilbur Emery

James T. died Dec. 13, 1932. I have a letter from his son-in-law Wilber to
his grandson Howard that might be of interest. Dated 7/23/56 from his
home in Lambertville (Michigan, I presume), it talks of photos of Howard's
baptism in Wilber's Hillcrest house. "The baptism was earlier than I had
thought--before your grandfather Prouse had retired from the ministry.
The pictures fix the date as about June of 1911, when you (Howard) were
nearly 2 and Herbert (Viola's and Wilber's second son) was about 4
months. Also there were three babies baptized instead of four, for you
cousin Doris, had not yet been born.
"Present at the ceremony, besides our family and your uncle
Clarence's family of three were grandfather and grandmother Prouse (James
T. and Georgia) and your great great grandmother Merrick."

James T. Prouse...who was postmaster in East New Market in the 1800s
and moved, as a minister, to Wilmington, Del. after his daughter, a
school teacher, took a job there. He was married to a Georgianna
Merrick. His parents were Hester Cheesman and Ebin Prouse. Ebin was a
farmer and land holder in the Cabin Creek area. Ebin's parents were
Seth Prouse and Lucretia Turner. Don't have my notes here for specific
dates or variants on spelling, but if these are of interest to you,
please write.
