Clarence Raymond Schorer, USAF, 1920-1982

13Oct08

I was looking for my ancestor Robert Johnson on ancestry.com, hoping for some new records or documents to add to my collection.

My search returned a family tree for the Flanagan family, which had Robert Johnson and Jane Mary Storey through the Schorer/Towner/Johnson branch.

I walked the Schorer tree using DM (Flanagan) Doyle’s tree and ancestry.com vital records, and added them to this tree. Her grandfather, Clarence R Schorer was my second cousin twice removed. She would be my fourth cousin.

Here is a photo of Clarence and his mother, Lillian “Lilly” (Towner) Schorer in Washington state.

Clarence was in the USAF in World War II, and in Milo Johnson’s photo album is this picture of Clarence in uniform.

According to Milo’s notes, the government sent Clarence to Alaska in the 1960s to take charge of Indian and Eskimo Stores. He then moved to Havre, Montana, as housing coordinator for Bureau of Indian Affairs, overseeing the construction of about 50 houses on the reservation.

All of the census documents are being uploaded now.
