Looking for parents of Grace Helen Brown, b. 3-6-1894 ?Leavenworth, KS, m. 10-27-1920 William John Cowling II, d. 7-11-1977 Leavenworth, KS. She appears in 1920 Leavenworth Census, prior to marriage, as boarder in household of Charles Bauer. Family lore has it that her father killed her mother and then commmitted suicide when Grace was about 12 years old; she then was raised by either nieghbors or grandparents, not sure which but there is some relation to a Soupiset family. I have not been able to locate a Grace Helen Brown, b. 1901, in the 1910 Census (during which her parents would have still been alive if family lore is correct). Is it possible her name was changed following death of parents, i.e., her birth name was other than Brown.
