My name is Keith Cowgill.My uncle Robert Reaugh Cowgill b. 14 May 1924 in McAllen, Hidalgo, Texas was married m. 18 Aug 1942 in Louisiana, Pike, Missouri, to Anita June Oberdahlhoff b. 19 Mar 1924 Quincy, Adams, Illinois.
I show her father was Joseph William Oberdahlhoff b. 26 Apr 1892, Durham, Marion, Missouri.I don't know when or where he died.He was married to Ethel L Fairchild b. abt 1898, in Illinois.They were married about 1916.
I found an Oberdahlhoff family in the 1900 census with James Oberdahlhoff, b. Jan. 1858 in Illinois, as the father and a Mary b. Oct. 1861 in Illinois as his wife.Ethel L is listed as his daughter.
There are several step children listed in the census also. William Davie b. Aug 1881 in Kansas. John W Davis b. aug 1888 or 1889 in Illinois. and Mary L Davis b. Oct 1886 in Illinois.
Is this the correct line from Anita June Oberdahlhoff to her mother Ethel L Fairchild, to her father James Fairchild?
I would like as much info on the oberdahlhoff and the Fairchild line that I could get my hands on.
I do have a copy of Joseph William Oberdahlhoffs WWI Draft Registration Card. I also found the Joe W. and Ethel L Oberdahlhoff family in the 1930 census with their children being Myrtle L., Earl and June A. I know this to be the correct line.
