Ola Florence Likens – Mystery Solved
So I’m very happy to report that my mystery surrounding Ola has been solved, and much more quickly than anticipated. Thanks to my newly found, distant cousin, Franklin Bishop, I have confirmed that Ola did not die when she was just a few months old, and did indeed live until the 1970′s. Franklin is Ola’s adopted son and has been a huge wealth of information. We’re still not sure why there is a death register for Ola in 1895, but I guess we may never really know why. He has sent me a whole packet (including pictures!) on his branch of the family which I have already started to absorb into my research.
I have scanned the pictures and once I touch them up a bit, I’ll post them.
Thanks again, Franklin!
