Thank you for replying.

I would especially like to know if there are birth or death records for either of those two men using those names. If so, what information is on them. Could you transcribe it if you don't mind.
I have found no birth or marriage records on line for either of them.

I suspect Oscar Cowan might be an alias for William Page, my wife's grandfather, who left his wife and family in 1927 while in Roxbury, (Boston) MA. His father's name was Oscar and his mother's maiden name was Cowan. He is the same age as "Oscar Cowan" and the Pages/Paiges were from Bangor and Brewer.

I have not found a trace of him afterwards, even when I had access to the microfilm of the actual Maine records at the genealogy society.

For more on the background of the mystery: I put an article on my blog at:

Thanks again. Me, my wife, and her family would greatly appreciate an answer if you find anything. you could post it here or email me at

Or leave a comment on the blog.
