Please accept my condolence for the untimely loss of your mom? Also, please collect as many death records as possible? Several of your ancestors also perished early. I'm not related and this is a courtesy lookup. Tobias' parents were Calvin Fowler (1848-1921) and Rebecca (nee: McCarter) Fowler (4 Dec 1860 - 24 May 1950). Unable to determine their marriage date but estimating 1875-1880 possibly in Houston County, TX. Find Calvin(3), first, in 1850 GA-Thomas-District 81-Image 15 with mom: Lydia(47). Lydia Fowler wed Reddick Watson, 9 Jan 1852, in Thomas, GA. Find them, with Calvin(14), in 1860 LA-Rapides-Not Stated-Image 14. Unable to locate Calvin in 1870. In 1880 TX-Houston-Crockett-022-Image 30, Calvin resided with his McCarter inlaws, misidentified as "McCarty". Next, 1900 TX-Anderson-Tucker-District 7-Image 20. Here, the family consisted of: Calvin(52), Rebecca(39), Tobias(19), Egbert(17), Lillie(13), Roxana(10), Thomas(8), and Daniel(4). No additional children born after Daniel. Calvin/Rebecca resided primarily in Liberty County after 1900. If you haven't already, logon https://familysearch.org/ and setup a "free" user account. That's required to view/print death certificates. Lookup death certificates: Roy Calvin Fowler (12 Mar 1914 - 28 Oct 1944), Tobias Fowler (22 Oct 1880 - 21 Mar 1965), Rosie "Roxie" Harrison (27 Oct 1930), Rebecca Fowler (4 Dec 1860 - 24 May 1950), and Egbert Fowler (4 Jan 1883 - 11 Nov 1918). Familysearch also has marriage date, 17 Sep 1905, for Tobias Fowler/Dora Lackey in Anderson County. They're found 1910 Liberty-Precinct 2-District 0082-Image 40, 1920 Anderson-Palestine Ward 2-District 7-Image 35, 1930 AR-Pulaski-North Little Rock-District 64-Image 12, and 1940 Liberty-Other Places-(146-3)-Image 23. There are several trees on this family. Point your mouse at "Search" in the header of ancestry.com's homepage. Scroll to "Public Member Trees" then click. Enter Calvin Fowler as the father and Rebecca as the mother. Omit her maiden name. Pulldown tab to display USA under "Country". Pulldown tab to display Texas under "State". Click search then click on tree-name to open. Select trees that have supporting documentation. Holler back if additional help required?
