Dorothy Sheek (b. 18 Aug 1901) married on 21 Oct 1920, in Johnson Co, IN, Leon Tingle (b. 9 Dec 1899; d. Sep 1978, Greenwood, Johnson Co, IN). I do not find Dorothy in the death index. Is she still living in 2004, or did she remarry? Or, is she simply not listed? We would appreciate any clarifying information.

Kinnick Book, pp. 188-194, had Ralph and Florence, but nothing about Dorothy.

In 1930 census, Greenwood, Pleasant Twp, Johnson Co, IN, Leon Tingle is Proprietor, Barber Shop, 30, and his wife, Dorothy, 28, is Bookkeeper, Automotive Sales, both IN3.
