I am researching what happened to a little 15 year old girl that ran away from Chicago to New York on Nov. 25, 1911. She was the un-formally adopted daughter of Anna and Herman (or Frank) Buehler of Chicago.

Her real mother married Frank Bobzene/Bobzin @ 1894. The couple had 1 son: John @ 1894, and Violet @ 1896. Frank had 3 brothers: Dr. Edwin C. Bobzin, John Bobzin, and Dr. R.R. Bobzin. Frank left Violet's real mother for a woman named Molly and moved to New York. Afterwords, Violet's mother supposedly kept the son and abandoned the little girl. She later remarried to a William Holzapfel of 1353 Sedgewick St., Chicago.

Violet had an aunt named Mr. P. Davidson who lived in Racine, Wis. She also had a grandmother named Mrs. Barbara Peters.

Mrs. Anna Buehler had a brother-in-law named Fred Bothman.

Violet wast he subject of several newspaper articles, which I have but can't attach since they are in .pdf format. But I have attached some photos. It seems that she was sent to juvenile court in Chicago under Judge Pickney on or about Jan. 26, 1912. I do not know where she went after that.

Mr. Herman or Frank Buehler either died on 12/9/1940, or he dies in 1909. Mr. William Holzapfel either died on 3/26/38 or 2/19/45. Both in Cook County records. Not positive on Anna or Violet's birth mother.

Is there any way to find out what happened to this young girl? I would be happy to send the newspaper articles to anybody who would research this.
