Thanks for answering Carol. I've been inquiring for a few years all because of a tidbit in Paulding co Ohio newspaper Sept 1932. Mrs Sank Danklefsen, cor. Mrs Dowden an old resident of Tipton died at the home of her son George in Defiance aged 78. She is buried in Arthur cemetery. I know Mary (Harpst)could be (Harps) Dowden had a son George. I know she married Thomas Dowden in Auglaize co Ohio; believe they had four, maybe five, ch; George, Dora, Walter, Eva and Maude. Another obit of George O. Harps died 1933 mentions a half-bro Andrew and a half-sister Mrs Mary Dowden of Wheatfield, Ohio. Believe this all comes from a second marriage of Mary but can't figure it out.
