In Reply to: Drinkwater by Henry Connors of 27741

Here are a couple of marriages for Dorothy's siblings:

New Hampshire, Marriage Records Index, 1637-1947 about Lorine Drinkwater
Name:        Lorine Drinkwater
Marriage Date:        16 Nov 1933
Event Type:        Marriage
Marriage Place:        Wolfboro, New Hampshire
Birth Date:        abt 1910
Age:        23
Gender:        Female
Father's Name:        Arthur A Drinkwater
Mother's Name:        Mary Montgomery
Spouse Name:        George E Macguire
Spouse Age:        25
Spouse Gender:        Male
Spouse Father's Name:        John Macguire
Spouse Mother's Name:        Agnes Marr
FHL Film Number:        2069574

Maine, Marriage Records, 1705-1922 about Marjory Drinkwater
Name:        Marjory Drinkwater, age 17, b. 1902 Watertown, Mass, Bank Clerk
Spouse: David L Strong, age 23, b. Thomaston, ME, Cotton Mill
Marriage Date:        23 Mar 1919
Marriage Place: Westbook

Mother: Mary Montgomery, dead, b. Westbrook
Spouse Father:        Allan H Strong, dead, b. St-George, ME
Spouse Mother:        Alice Leamond, of Waverly, Mass, b. Thomaston, ME

So, Dorothy's mother was deceased by 1919. This is probably a death record for her:

Maine, Death Records, 1617-1922 about Mary L Drinkwater
Name:        Mary L Drinkwater
[Mary L Montgomery]
Residence: 77 Bridge
Gender:        Female
Age:        38 yrs, 4 mon, 4 days
Birth Date:        11 Sep 1880
Death Date:        15 Jan 1919
Death Place:        Westbrook
Registration Place:        Westbrook, Cumberland
Spouse: James Drinkwater
Father: James Montgomey [sic], b. Scotland, Ship Carpenter
Mother: Not Given, b. Scotland
Cause of death: Pneumonia, 2 week, due to Influenza

So, she probably succumbed to the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918. Hope this helps. Annie
