Hi, I just read your post re. Samuel B. Gowen/Kate Nora Gowen. The Samuel Benjamin Gowen in my records was b 1893, d1956. His only wife that I know of was Elsie Smith.
There is another Samuel B. Gowen in my data base, and I'm not sure if he is the same Samuel Benjamin or a different Person. He's shown as Samuel "Bud." I have no information regarding him if he is indeed a separate person. Kate Nora Gowen is not in my records at all.
