Looking for information and/or anyone connected to family of ENOS SOWLE (parents JOHN SOWLE and FLORILLA (DIKEMAN or DYKEMAN).Enosmarried JUSTINA M. (CURTIS) SOWLE.Short Biography for Enos Sowle can be found at http://www.memoriallibrary.com/MI/LivIngPB/bios717-727.htm#723http://www.memoriallibrary.com/MI/LivIngPB/bios717-727.htm#723
In 1880 CENSUS for Livingston County, Michigan, Enos Sowle household lists the following residents :
Enos Sowle, Head, Married, age 53, bn. abt. 1839 Occupation:Farmer
Justina M. Sowle, Wife, Married, age 41, bn. abt. 1839
Mary J. Sowle, Daughter, Married, age 23, bn. abt. 1857
George E. Sowle, Son, Single, age 21, bn. abt. 1859
Freddie Sowle, Son, Single, 6 months, bn. abt. 1879
Rosa Sowle, daughter, Single, age 12 bn. abt. 1868
Also living in the household Elmer C. Havens, (relationship blank), Married, age 27, occupation: Farmer (Other info shows he worked as a laborer at other local farms as well.)
At age 28, MARY J. SOWLE married GEORGE CARL in 1885 and had twin girls, MARCIA ANN and MARTHA M. CARL in 1887, and later a son, E.S. CARL in 1896. (I believe his name is EARL.)
The above-mentioned biography and later census records reveal that Mary J. Sowle is or played the role of mother to FRED SOWLE (her mother JUSTINA (CURTIS) SOWLE may have also been called his "mother").We believe that ELMER HAVENS (above) had brief marriage to Mary J. Sowle, and he may perhaps is the father of Fred/Freddie.
FRED SOWLE married JESSIE PAPWORTH in 1921.They had a daughter, MARY ELIZABETH SOWLE abt. 1925.
Will be appreciative and delighted for any additional information. My own connection to this family wasrevealed only recently, and previously this branch had long been filled with little more than question marks.
