Bessie Lowmaster Earl

Bessie Marie Lowmaster was born 25 Oct 1887, in Newark Twp., Licking Co., Ohio. Daughter of Charles J. and Nellie (Belt) Lowmaster.

She married Guy Hileman Earl on 17 Sep 1907.

Around 1910-11, they moved from Ohio to Elkhart, Indiana. They had two children: Nellie Olive and Harry G.

In 1930, Guy and Bessie were listed as married but living in separate households. Bessie lived with their son, Harry (he lived with her) whereas Guy was living with Nellie and her husband, Elmer Davis. They divorced 23 Jun 1930.

In 1933 Guy married Maude Bridenstine. I have found no record of Bessie since 1930. lists her death as 11 Feb 1974 which I cannot locate a source. They also list Guy Earl's death as 11 Feb 1974. High doubtful both died the same day. At least a gravestone exists for him with the year 1974.

Most likely she remarried and her record is with a surname other than Earl. Or Lowmaster.

Looking for a definitive date of death.
