The Lost Sister

There’s another sister?! There’s another sister!

While poking around the online family tree I’ve been updating regularly on FamilySearch I clicked on one of the automatically generated clues and boy wasn’t I surprised.

A woman named Dora Blanche Boal married a man named Fleming in 1895 in Washington County, Iowa. And her parents were named Boal and Foster!

She’s another sister of my great-great grandmother, Nettie Ann Bowl. So that’s now four sisters: Nettie, Jennie, Stella & Dora Blanche. Apparently she later went by the name Blanche rather than Dora.

How I missed her I don’t know. I’m gonna have to track down who took care of her after their parents died so tragically young.
