Howard Appleton Negley, 1898-1983

Seeking information on the wives and children of Howard Appleton Negley (1898-1983). Howard was the son of Felix Casper Negley, Jr. and Mary Seaton Appleton. Born in Butler, PA, he moved to Texas and lived on his sister’s ranch in Kerr Co., TX Howard was a sometime actor and had roles in a number of Hollywood films

His filmography reads:

“American general purpose actor Howard Negley made his screen bow as Nelson in 20th Century Fox's Smokey. Negley went on to reasonably prominent character parts in such B-pictures as Charlie Chan in the Trap (1947). For the most part, he played nameless bit parts as police captains, politicians, and reporters. Howard Negley was last seen as the Twentieth Century Limited conductor in Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959)”
~ Hal Erickson, ALL MOVIE GUIDE.

Howard served briefly in the U.S. Army (Sept. – Dec, 1918).

He had two or three wives: We do not know the names of his first two wives (or was it only one), but he had two unnamed children with each (or was it four with one?). In 1974 he married Lydia Powell in Kerr Co., TX.

Howard was a great, great grandson of Alexander Negley of Pittsburgh, PA.

QUESTIONS: What were the names of wives 1 (and 2). What were their birth and death dates.

More importantly, what were the names of his children (who still may be alive in the Kerr Co., TX area)?

Willing to share information.
