Bertha May Rossnagel
  1949 - Bertha May Rossnagel is born in Fairfield Co., OH.  Her death certificate and grave marker have the birth year as 1853 which is incorrect. 

In the 1850 Census, Bertha appears with parents in Bloom, Fairfield Co., OH.  The name on this record for her father is badly butchered.  Only being in the country a few years, their English was probably limited and the census taker was most likely writing down what he phonetically heard.  Also of note on the 1850 Census is who they were living next door to.  Lewis Ludwig Borchers.  I could not find what the relationship is to Bertha's mother Doris, the odds are that there was some relationship (uncle, brother, etc.) 

In the 1860 Census Bertha appears at 11 years old with her parents and younger siblings in Columbus, OH.

Therefore, the date of 1853 as Bertha's birth year is proven wrong by these Census records.

Edwin Toots Stowe
  About Edwin's middle name----Toots is what he gave the clerk when getting his marriage license.  See it below. He got his marriage license in 1917.  In 1917 the word "toots" was not yet a slang term.  There are some people with the name Toots.  Then again the name Toots may have been someone his father knew in the Circus and could have been a nickname.  The marriage license is the only place this middle name appears in full.

Also of note on this marriage license, is the middle name given by Ethel of "Nathaile" which is either misspelled or not really a name. This middle name only appears on this document.  Another thought is that this couple enjoyed joking around and gave fictional middle names. Just hypothesizing.....
  1900 - 1910 - Census - Living with parents
  1910 - Worked in the office for the U G Denman, the Attorney General of Ohio.  Edwin T Stowe shows up in online documents as a staff member working as a messenger.

  I do not know what the reason was for the double wedding.  Maybe the first was an elopement?  When they divorced, was it in both states or only OH?

Obituary for Patricia Ann Higgins Kavanaugh
https://www.porterfuneralhome.com/ObituaryDetails.aspx?id=60146
Accessed August 18, 2021
  Patricia Ann (Higgins) Kavanaugh, known as “Granny” or “Chatty Patty” by those who loved her dearest, age 88, passed away peacefully on July 6th.

Patty leaves behind three children, Deborah, Kevin, and Sean, seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Patrick, and son, Michael.

She will be remembered for her faith and love of her family, including her church family at St. Agnes. In her younger days, she enjoyed tennis and weekends at the lake. She also had a scooter, and was often seen riding around the neighborhood and to the store. She worked at Ranchview floral for a number of years and always had beautiful floral arrangements and holiday decorations. She will forever be remembered for her unique perspective on things, and her Patty-isms will continue to live on through her family and friends.

Per Patricia’s request, a private service will be held for the family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that gifts be made to St. Agnes Parish.
