Nelson Cowan/Carrie E marriage 1916 PA

Hello I am looking for any information on Nelson Cowan who married Carrie Elizabeth in PA in 1916. She was born in NY in 1874 and his birth date is unknown to me. They had one child, a girl, Ruth Evangaline born that year in Red Rock PA. She died in NJ in 1999. I am her daughter. Carrie's maiden name is unknown to me at this time.

I know Nelson was employed as a coal truck driver for the AFL(?) in 1920 and they were living in PA at that time. I have no other information on him as to birth or death. I do have pictures of him and in one he is with another man who could be his brother. Any info would be greatly appreiated.
I also have a picture taken at the time of their marrige. A tin-type. Betty Gambill
