The Mrs. George Fowler who was writing the Forest Grove and Boston news sketches would have been Bessie, b. 1889, wife of George C. Fowler. He was the son of Robert William “Will” Fowler, a brother of Delana Louise Jane Fowler who married Ray Noyes. “Will” was married to Lucinda Workman. In 1920 George and Bessie were living in Richland, Barton, Missouri and his parents in Lamar. She wrote a number of these columns which often reported on Noyes and Fowler family activities.
