I looked at the census records for 1900, 1910, 1920. 4 or 5 days ago for Sam Girten and William EWillett. Those i already had identified.
I am trying to find records that tie Maggie and Annie together. I thought knowing Annie had a sister would give me another route to pursue in finding the parents of the of Annie, but so far i havent seen anything that ties the 2 girls together conclusively .
Annie born abt 1867. Died before 1910 census. ("Annie" maybe a nickname not sure if its her real name) Maggie born abt 1878
Looks like Maggie may have lived until 1958 but she has no Social Security app.
I requested the Social Security app for some of the girten children to see how maiden last name is listed.
Bolds and Bowles are valid (different) surnames when you look at the census records the surname stands out pretty clear to the eye.
I guess it is possible that my grandfather didnt even know how to spell his mothers name. She did die when he was young. I think i will wait for some documention before i reach that conclusion.
