Seeking info about Pauline E. Bowlan (b. abt 1912, Grafton) and Edgar Lee Strange (1911-1966 from Florida, but lived for a time in NH).

Also, I am trying to track down Betty J. Strange Jones (a daughter of Edgar Lee Strange). She posted a thread on the Strange Surname board in Mar 2008, with username bfjstrange1 and email The email no longer works, and she has not responded to messages via her username on, so she may no longer be a member.

She was seeking info about her father, Edgar Lee Strange. I have info about one of his wives (Pauline E. Bowlan), and I'm trying to ascertain whether Betty is Edgar's daughter by another wife, or whether Pauline is her mother. If anyone knows her or how to get in touch with her, I'd appreciate it.
