I have been agonizing and really frustrated by the lack of information on Olive Bowser Stephens and her parents Jacob and Mary Bowser of Armstrong County PA.
Today out of the blue, I was looking in my Bowser folder actually, it suddenly struck me……..Olive’s second marriage. She was married in 1914 and in Pittsburgh. At that point in time the parents names were required on the marriage license applications. Why did I not realize this a year and a half ago. Why did it take looking at her second husband, Oswald Rauhut’s immigration papers to finally figure out to look at their marriage application.
I will go to Pittsburgh and look it up as soon as the Batman filming is ended and all of those filmmakers and actors have gone.
Has anyone else done something incredibly off the wall like that, missed something so obvious in their research? I feel like a complete idiot over this basic record.
