Burial and obit for Byron and Cora Sowle

Burial and obit for Byron and Cora Sowle

Posted: 13 Dec 2012 3:02PM GMT
Classification: Query
The 1930 census shows residing at 202 Kalamazoo St, Paw Paw village, Byron Sowle age 79, wife Cora age 73, son Fred age 43, dil Irene age 39, grandson Richard age 16. Byron was the county agent for state welfare and Fred was a service manager at a garage. Byron's mother was Barbara McMahan and his father was Francis Sowle of Fremont tp, Steuben Co, IN. Have done much research on the McMahan line and would like to find death and burial information, living relatives, etc. for this family. Glad to share what I have. Mailing address 1405 Hunt Rd, Mayville, MI 48744

Yes, there is more than one Byron and Cora Sowle. The one on FAG is the 'other' one.

Byron who married Cora Morse and they are the parents of Fred Wellington is the one we are trying to find. This Byron is the son of Barbara McMahan Sowle.
