After doing some drawn-out searching, we have disscovered the following:
My great-great-grandfather, CHARLES LEWIS BOWSHER,was theson of german immigrants according to the 1910 census and his death certifcate. We have been told there were links to Daniel Bowsher of the Allen/Auglaize area and to an Amos Bowsher, but my latest searches have disproven those theories. We also were told that our Charles was married to a woman named Mariah Garb, Anne Garroll, Anna E. Garle, Elizabeth, and Anna Elizabeth Garle. He was married ONLY once and the records show Anna E. Garle. We do not know where the Mariah came from, but we know that his wife was ANNA ELIZABETH GARLE who was born in Ohio as was her parents.
I will continue to search, and appreciate any help any one might be able to give me. Thank you for looking, and for your time. Blessings to all, Peggy Lacy
