Friday, April 1, 2016 Daisy Ellen Caswell (1916-1996)

Daisy Ellen Caswell was born on 12 November 1916 in Missouri, likely in Novinger, to Robert Caswell and Margaret "Maggie" Muir. Her father was a coal miner all of his working life. Between 1922 and 1928 the family moved to Danville Township, Illinois. Daisy attended Danville High School as a freshman in 1932 and a sophomore in 1933. I do not know if she graduated.

In 1940 she lived with her parents and worked as an "office girl" in a physician's office.

She married Charles Edgar Taylor, Jr., of Baltimore, Maryland, sometime after the 1940 census was enumerated. I do not know where or how they met, but I suspect both of them had moved to the Orlando area in Florida and met and married there. They had a son in 1947.

In 1948 Daisy and her family lived at 635 West Jefferson Street in Orlando. A decade later, they lived at 301 Arapahoe Trail in Maitland, Florida.

Daisy's husband died on 2 April 1984 in Orange County, Florida. Daisy Ellen (Caswell) Taylor died on 20 July 1996 in Marion County, Florida.
