If you are submitting corrections to any of the profiles that I have created, please allow time for me to get them updated. I am a father of several small children, and work a full-time job. Find-a-grave is not my only life. And with that said, there is no reason to send nasty messages or emails because I don't jump up and make changes to a profile the minute you request them. Please excercise patience and respect.|
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. This is the POLICY of Find A Grave.
Lately, I have received a lot of transfer requests from other contributors wanting to simply add someone to a memorial that we have already created. If you do not fall in the above listed Find A Grave guidelines for transfer, then please do not waste our time or yours requesting a transfer.

Sylvanus F. Bowser per Addison B. Bowser, "The Bowser Family History" (1922) page 66-67:
SYLVANUS F. BOWSER
Mr. Bowser was born August 8, 1854, eight miles north of Fort Wayne, Ind. His father was John H. Bowser and his mother's maiden name was
About three months of elementary instruction in the district school was the extent of his school experience. Later, however, self-instruction gave
him some knowledge of primary arithmetic.
Chopping wood, delivering ice and other rough labor served as his introduction to the business of earning a livelihood. He traveled for some time
as salesman for a paper house. At the age of 31 (1885) he conceived the idea of a self-measuring pump for coal oil. With the aid of his brother and his nephew, ______ A. Bowser, he built the first device, and continued to build others from that time on.
Likewise, he sold the products of the embryo shop, was its bookkeeper and general majiager until the business was started and was its president for thirty-seven years. January 1, 1922, he was elected chairman of the board
The company which grew out of such a small beginning has branched out and expanded until today S. F. Bowser & Company, Inc., employs about
twenty-five hundred people; has two subsidiary companies (S. F. Bowser Co., Ltd., Toronto, Canada, and S. F. Bowser & Co. of Texas, Dallas, Tex.) has a manufacturing plant at Milwaukee, Wis. ; has warehouses in Albany, N. Y. ; Dallas. Tex., and San Francisco, Calif. ; tank assembly plants at Albany, Dallas, San Francisco and Sydney, Australia, and offices and salesmen
in all of the principal cities of the world.
The company is valued at approximately ten million dollars, has a payroll of two and one-quarter million dollars per year and is enjoying steady growth and development.
As stated, Mr. Bowser is now chairman of the board of directors, and Allen A. Bowser, who helped start the business, and Harry M. Bowser, his son, are vice-presidents.
Mr. Bowser was married in 1877 to Sarah F. Russell and to this union six children were born: Harry, Eva, William Hugh, Albert, Verne and Mildred.
Mr. Bowser is enjoying vigorous health in his sixty-eighth year and gives promise of many years more of active business life.

Thank you for adding and keeping the memorial to my aunt, Florence Belle (Fishel) Cole, Find a Grave Memorial #19591617.
If I may, I would like to request a couple of changes to the memorial page; Aunt Florence was preceded in death by her eldest son Roger Lee Cole - whom you currently identify as "Robert L. Cole".
Also, my Grandmother was Eliza Ann (Mozee) Fishel,whom you currently identify as "Lizanne (Mozee) Fishel".
Eliza Ann was aunt Florence's mother and my Grandfather was Moses Ulysses Fishel, aunt Florence's father; my father was Cassell William Fishel, her older brother b:1906 - d:1966.
I fully understand how keeping up this memorial is not your primary occupation and I certainly can be very patient while awaiting these changes. Please let me know if I may assist in any other fashion and when you are able to get to these change I would greatly appreciate if you could drop me a note.
