Era Young and Sylvia Pauline Bowlan Ketner of Oklahoma

Era Young and Sylvia Pauline Bowlan Ketner of Oklahoma

Found this photo in a Greenbrier, Arkansas flea market. The caption says "Era Young and Sylvia Bowlan". It was found with a few other Bowlan photos related to Guin, Alabama. Because of this I believe this to be:

Sylvia Pauline Bowlan Ketner
born 12 Oct 1904 in Guin, Marion County, Alabama
died May 1982 in Marlow, Stephens County, Oklahoma
daughter of David Wood Bowlan (1878-1950) and Martha Lucinda Sizemore (1879-1972)

Era Young
born 09 Apr 1905 in Poteau, Oklahoma
died 04 Dec 1987 in Oklahoma City, OK
daughter of Lee B. Young (9 Oct 1879 - 25 Feb 1936) and Cora Bell Bowlan (20 May 1881 - 14 Jan 1947)

These two related families were living next to each other in Cleveland County, OK at one point.
