Ok. It took me awhile to sort this out & summarize.
Thomas Bellis Jacobson was the son of Arthur Elmer Jacobson & Irene Bellis. He was descendent of American Revolutionary war veteran and applied for membership in SAR while living in Great Falls in 1949-50.
His SAR # 69293.
If you want that application info I can give it to you, his revolutionary war ancestor was on his mother Irene's side of family... Listed marriages back generations to Ezekiel Ayers, Ensign in New Jersey militia, born 1754 Hackettstown NJ, d 1835 NJ. I followed some censuses back few generations to be certain. I have that detail with marriages.
That SAR app had Thomas's birth date 2 Dec 1927, Miles City.
*Irene Bellis was with her mother Helena Abraham Bellis & sister Mabel (a stenographer) in Jamestown North Dakota City Directory in 1912; where Irene was the Elk County Auditor.
*Younger sister Helen Genevieve Bellis Brotzman-age 30 divorced- married James Elwood Fugett in 1933 Miles City. With brother in law AE Jacobson as witness.
*1937 Mrs AE Jacobson director of MacDowell Music Club for Boys of Miles City.
