Bowsher Family of Auglaize Co in Ohio
Posted by: Peggy Lacy (ID *****2772) Date: July 27, 2002 at 00:42:10
  of 88

I am researching my BOWSHER family line and could use any help possible. Here is what I know:
My great-grandmother was Essie Delores (middle name ha been spelled many ways) BOWSHER, the daughter of Charles Bowsher and Mariah Garb. Essie was born in 1894 in Waynesfield, Auglaize Couny, Ohio. She married Everett Forest Green in 1910 in Waynesfield and had the following children: Nettie Augusta Green, Hazel Elizabeth Green
CHARLES EVERETT GREEN,(grandpa)
Marguerite Lucille Green,
Robert Eugene Green,
Florence Irene Green
Essie died 11-25-1927 after fighting breast cancer and having at least one masectomy.

Here is what I have been told, but am UNABLE to prove: Essie had a brother named OSCAR BOWSHER who was married to Cecil Beech and was the father of Charles Berlin Bowsher. I have found links from Essie's father to Francis M and Elizabeth (Strous) Bowsher and Amos Bowsher(Bousher) and Catherine Heffner.

I have a photo of Oscar, Berlin, Berlin's baby Carol, and "Grandma Bowsher". I do not know "Grandma Bowsher"'s name, nor do I know if she was Essie's grandma or Essie's mom. The photo looks to be from the mid-late 1920's. ANY help will be appreciated. I would also like to know if anyone can tell me where I can purchace the Boucher/Bowsher Family book. I have heard about it but do not know where to find it.
Thank you in advance.
