Hello!

I am searching for information regarding Ninnie Lee Brown Rosenthal Locklin. Ninnie has been listed in family trees as Winnie. I hope the information I am adding here will be of help to you and maybe you will have the information that I am needing!!!

Ninnie Lee Brown, daughter of William Lipscomb Brown and Mary Ella Pruett/Pruitt/Prewitt, was born in Milam Co., TX on 8 Sept 1899.

Ninnie married, 3 Mar 1927 in Milam Co., TX, Albert Henry Rosenthal, a son of Herman William Rosenthal and Christine Kano.

Ninnie and Albert had 4 known children (all deceased): James Albert, William Lawrence, Henry Oscar and Herman Alton Rosenthal. Henry Oscar and Herman Alton were twins.

Albert Henry Rosenthal died in 1947. Sometime after Albert's death, Ninnie married a Locklin, according to her TX Death Certificate #45526. Ninnie died in Austin, Travis Co., TX. Her cause of death was "Bronchogenic Carcinoma" and shows that she died in Seton Hospital after a 5 yr stay? The name on her TX DC is Ninnie Lee Locklin, daughter of Will Brown and Ella Pruett. The informant on her DC was her son, Henry Rosenthal. Ninnie was also shown as widowed, so I can only assume that her Locklin husband was also deceased prior to her death on June 13, 1970. Both Albert and Ninnie were buried at the Thorndale City Cemetery, Thorndale, Milam Co., TX, as are both of Albert's parents. Ninnie's parents are both buried at the Pleasant Retreat Cemetery, south (about 6 miles) of Thorndale, Milam Co., TX. Ninnie maternal grandparents, Wilson Prewitt and Lucinda Ann "Lucy" Sullivan Prewitt, are both interred at the Conoley Cemetery, also south (about 4.5 miles) of Thorndale, Milam Co., TX.

Ninnie and Albert's sons' DOB's/DOD's and places of interment are as follows:
James Albert Rosenthal: Nov. 4, 1927 - Jun. 15, 1988, Thorndale City Cemetery, Thorndale, Milam Co., TX;
William Lawrence Rosenthal: May 26, 1929 - Nov. 13, 1990, San Geronimo Cemetery, Seguin, Guadalupe Co., TX;
Henry Oscar Rosenthal: May 23, 1932 - Dec. 31, 1990, Cedar Park Cemetery, Cedar Park, Williamson Co., TX;
Herman Alton Rosenthal: May 23, 1932 - Sep. 22, 2004, Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, San Antonio, Bexar Co., TX.

FindAGrave memorials can be found for all of the above. Not all of them have headstone photos posted at this date.

I also have, if you are interested, the siblings of Ninnie's mother, their DOB's/DOD's and places of interment.

Though "Locklin" is the main focus of my family research and I was born and raised, for the most part, in Thorndale, Milam Co., TX (now living in GA), I have not been able to determine which Locklin man Ninnie married.

If anyone knows which Locklin man Ninnie married after Albert's death, I would so greatly appreciate your reply to this thread or by emailing me at slocklint@comcast.net.

I hope the above information is helpful to Rosenthal, Brown, or Prewitt (variant spellings) researchers.

Best Regards,
