In December 1993 Jean Helen Gowan Near of Redwood Val­ley, California wrote to the Foundation requesting assistance in the research of her family:

“In my research on my branch of the Gowan family I have run across two mysteries which I would welcome any help in solv­ing.

1. Frank [Frankin] Gowan was born March 8, 1896 to John Manning Gowan and Sarah McDougald Gowan. Frank served overseas in World War I, and afterward, unable to settle down, traveled. Other than a last letter to his mother, the family has not heard from him since 1927. Most of his family now lives in Ontario, Canada.

2. Lucy [Lucinda] Arvilla Tylor Gowan, daughter of Nelson and Lydia Tyler, was born born in 1855 in Pennsylvania and listed as a five-year-old in the 1860 census. She was married June 2, 1869 in Ellington, Wisconsin in Outagamie County. They homesteaded in Yankton County, Dakota Territory.

Three sons were born to them. Walter Edwin Gowan, July 8, 1870 and Ezra Lewis Gowan, April 3, 1872 were born in Dakota Territory. Lester Darwin Gowan was born October 9, 1873 in Wisconsin. The family was enumerated in 1880 in Waukechon, Wisconsin in Shawnee County.

The mystery is that no one knows what became of Lucy. Lester told the story that when he was just a little boy, he waved goodbye to his mother as she was driven away in a carriage. He never saw her again.

In both cases, 1&2, the person seems to have simply dropped from sight. Is it possible that someone, somewhere knows the story of what happened to them? Jean Helen Gowan Near, 14909 Tomki Road, Redwood Valley, CA, 95470.
