I am searching for information about:
Oscar Bernard FOWLER
Martha Jane ANDERSON
Guy Anderson FOWLER
born: 10 August 1874 Cobden, Union Co, Illinois
died: 15 April 1961 Pendelton, Oregon
marr: Martha Mae Seymour
Gail or Gale FOWLER
According to my mother Martha Jane was previously married to a MCCARTNEY
and had one or two sons by him.
According to a very bad photocopy of Guy Anderson's birth certificate
handed down to me, both Oscar and Martha were born in Kentucky and
Oscar's occupation is listed as Methodist Minister. The certificate was
made using information sworn to by Clarance L REED of Anna, Illinois who
declares he is Guy's uncle.
According to a very suspect copy of the 1880 census for Stokes, Union
Co, Illinois (call # 1254254) a Martha FOWLER and her children were
living with Penda (? - the writing is very unclear, it could be Pender,
Penda or Kalamazoo) REED and her three children. Martha's children are
listed as Guy, age 5; Gale, age 3; and Guss, age 1. Martha is listed as
Penda's daughter. Interestingly enough, there are no adult males listed
What, you might be asking, does this man want to know? Well, aside from
the solution to the Grand Unified Theory, and why my parents birthdates
are never the winning lottery numbers, I would like to know:
Who Penda REED really is and if she is my great great-grandmother?
The names of Oscar Bernard FOWLER's parents and where they came from.
The birth dates and proper names of Gale and Guss, and who they married.
If Martha is the daughter of a Ms REED, then who and where is the
ANDERSON that gave her her maiden name?
Was Martha Jane really married to someone named McCARTNEY, and if so who
was he and what happenned to him?
Where is Oscar in 1880?
If you have any leads I will be very grateful. Willing to share any
information I have about Guy Anderson's offspring, and SEYMOUR, BOSS,
