Sherry, I am searching the Towslee name (helping a friend) and came across you message. I know the message is old, but wondered if you had found what you were looking for? So if you have found the answers to you question you can just disregard this response. I did a little searching and found the following: Frank H. Towslee, b. 10 Feb 1876 in Iowa and died 9 Dec 1949 in Avoca, Wisconsin. He married a Sylva Knickerbacker about 1908. Sylva was the daughter of Hiram Knickerbocker and Anna Bell Waters. Sylva was born Aug 1893 in Millville, Clayton County, Iowa and died 21 June 1931 in Independence, Buchanan, Iowa. It seemed to fit your scenerio.
